We all have this problem, although I don't think it is a redirect issue.
It seems to happen on every server where the windows client downloads
much faster than the linux client. I opened a bug about this bug#333 if
your interested or can narrow it down at all. I'm sure Ryan would be
interested in whatever you find. I don't know where they are on this bug
other than it is being looked into.
