You should follow Brian's suggestion. I haven't really followed all  
of this thread, sorry.

By the way, libUrl will automatically follow redirects if the  
original request is a GET, but won't follow them for POST requests.  
(This follows the http rfc spec.) I'm assuming your login request  
used POST.

To extract the Location url:

put libUrlLastRHHeaders() into tRHHeaders
put lineOffset("Location:", tRHHeaders) into tLocLine
if tLocLine > 0 then
   put word 2 to -1 of line tLocLine of tRHHeaders into tNewLoc
end if
