I'm experiencing problems with updates when I execute
httrack with the following command line options:

httrack -iC2 -q -k -%s -%u -%k -v -%v0 -u1 -o0 -X0 -%p -I0 -a -%P -c4 -%c10 -N
%h%p/%n.%t%k -R2 -T20 -M3221225472 -r8 -A100000000 <>

The first time, it downloads a lot of PDFs documents under when I try to update the site,
it doesn't download them and there is no trace of them on
the new.txt file.

I've been digging the site, and there is implemented some kind of "antileech"
mechanisms. It is necessary to follow
two 302 redirects and afterwards using a HEAD request to
be able to download the PDFs...(Im not sure of this,
I've found it out after a lot of tests with -%H option

The saddest thing of all this is that if I execute
httrack -iC2 <>, it seems to work perfectly !?
What am I doing wrong ? I think there is some kind of
bug on the way 302 messages are handled by the HTTrack's
cache or something similar....please help me, Im desperate! :)
