  Hello, 

  I just posted this notice to www-lib-bugs@w3.org.
  Has anyone else noticed this behavior?  
  Has anyone attempted a workaround?
 
  - Very puzzled indeed,

  Greetings,

  w3c is unable to retrieve any HTML source from http://www.sonicnet.com.
  Upon closer inspection, w3c fails on the second temporary redirection
  (HTTP Status 302).  Netscape Navigator 3.0 handles this site cleanly.
  I've enclosed the w3c output for the above problem.  Any guesses as to
  why this happens, and, is there a possible workaround?
  
  Thanks in advance,

  Chris Pallotta.

  P.S.  I am using a proxy for w3c (skippy.allmedia.com), but I don't 
        think it makes a big difference.  In running w3c with "-v",
	I find the first request sent returns the following redirection:
	  "http://www.sonicnet.com/track/nph-cook.cgi?/"
	but the next request sent fails to return a redirection:
	  "Redirection. No destination" and 
	  "Load End.... Request ended with code 302"
        are output in HTFilter.c
