[smokeping-users] Curl probe only measures primary target, not the redirects

First of all I want to thank the devs for this great tool
I like it's combination of power and simplicity.

I've got my forms, cookies, redirects, etc happening.
Just have one problem left that I need some help with.

The page below results in a number of redirects.
My problem is that my probe only records the time taken to download this
small "relocated" page, not the big one sitting behind it.
An Ethereal trace on the server shows that the whole lot is correctly
being downloaded by the probe.

Is there anything I can do about this?
