Blocklist doesn't follow redirects

Description

Using Transmission 2.3.1 on Mac OS X 10.6.7:

When attempting to update a block list from http://www.bluetack.co.uk/config/level1.gz the operation fails with "The operation couldn’t be completed. (NSURLErrorDomain error -1102.)"

Currently, requesting the above URL is redirected:

$ wget http://www.bluetack.co.uk/config/level1.gz

Asking transmission to update the block list from http://rps8755.ovh.net/blocklists/level1.gz succeeds.

Presumably this means Transmission is not following redirects when requesting the block list.

Error -1102 corresponds to "a resource cannot be read due to insufficient permissions".

Turns out Bluetack appear to be forbidding anyone with a user agent containing "Darwin" from downloading the level1 blocklist. Not sure about anything else. Taking up query with them.
