           Summary: [CURL] Should handle redirects in WebCore
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: All
               URL: http://software.hixie.ch/utilities/cgi/data/data
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Keywords: Gtk, Curl
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: New Bugs
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: alp at nuanti.com

CURL's ResourceHandleManager currently sets:

curl_easy_setopt(d->m_handle, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, 1);

This means that HTTP redirects are handled behind the scenes by CURL. This
incorrectly bypasses WebCore functionality and makes it difficult to fire the
right signals and policy events at the right time. Moreover, it also bypasses
WebCore's resources and data URL parsing capabilities.

http://software.hixie.ch/utilities/cgi/data/data is an example of a page that
redirects to a data URL that's currently not working.

Patch coming up.
