Have you tried setting the option {autoredirect, false}? Do you get
the redirect answer then? The intes client will automaticly try to
redirect the request. If it gets a redirect more than four times
in a row it should give up.

You could try the following trace commands to get some more info
about what happens. (If it does not seem to be what is expected
you can send me the printouts and I will look at them.)
dbg:p(all, [call]).
dbg:tpl(httpc_response, redirect, [{'_', [], [{return_trace}]}]).
