Thank you for the bug report. I just released this fix (I hope) to PAUSE. commit bcc6b11a4effd9a59e6315a1c667d88067896231 Author: Rocco Caputo <> Date: Sat Mar 10 14:51:54 2012 -0500 [ 70268] Some DNS providers redirect bad hosts. They redirect bad hosts instead of allowing outright failure. I think it's supposed to be helpful, or improve domain sales, or both, or something. But anyway, it meant that people using certain DNS providers wouldn't be able to cleanly test this distribution. Thanks to "blackcode" for reporting this. Unfortunately I'm not sure of a foolproof solution other than to make the test accept 303s. Patches are welcome, dear reader from the future.
