Hi, I'm using Mechanize-0.8.4 to pass some traffic through a custom proxy. This proxy requires basic authentication. If I request www.google.com, I will get redirected to google.co.uk or whatever. The problem is that if the request is https, and if the proxy server sends a redirect (302) to the client, mechanize will fail: c:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:2106:in `error!': 302 "Moved Temporarily" (Net::HTTPRetriableError) from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:2115:in `value' from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:588:in `connect' from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:557:in `do_start' from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:552:in `start' from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/mechanize-0.8.4/lib/www/mechanize.rb:450:in `fetch_page' from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/mechanize-0.8.4/lib/www/mechanize.rb:221:in `get' Instead of giving this error, I would expect mechanize to follow the redirect, as it normally does without using a proxy. Any hint appreciated, thanks!
