Welcome to the real world. *Nobody* respects that rule :-)
Here is what we do:

	"Grab the url and retry. Note that although the HTTP spec says that the
	location header contains 'a single absolute URI' we've found that some
	places use a relative URI instead (and are therefore in violation of 
the spec).
	Since asUrlRelativeTo: deals with absolute URLs too, that's not a problem."
	url := (header copyAfter: $:) withBlanksTrimmed asUrlRelativeTo: url.
