Yes, because httrack, when encountering "unknown" types 
(such as .cgi, .pl ..), will issue a first "type test" 
(HEAD request). If a 302 error occurs, httrack directly 
changes the link name. 

For regular "known" files (.html, .php..), httrack will 
only "see" 302 redirects once the page is fetched, after 
the link was generated in the parent page - which will 
require an "intermediate" page to be generated.
