Two alternative methods to get the redirection info:

1) enable verbose mode and set debug buffer, then extract
    * Connected to xxx (ip.ip.ip.ip) port nnn (#n)
   messages. but that would be an ugly hack.

2) disable follow location and do redirection manually. I've done
   this some years ago, because I needed all performance and url data
   of all redirection steps. (Including redirection by meta-refresh from html).
