This is a known issue with rpm's http code. It doesn't do cookies. It
can't really follow redirects (302 or otherwise) well, and generally
it's a hack.  That's why Karanbir said to look at rpm's http handling
code.  It was written back when dinosaurs roamed the internet, and was
pounded into rpm with a rather large mallet.
