Default rpmforge-release install/rpm problem

I wanted to install the rpmforge-release package on a new install and get
the following. Do others have the same problem?

b51:~ rpm -ivvvvvvvh http://packages.sw.be/rpmforge-release/rpmforge-
release-0.3.6-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm
Retrieving http://packages.sw.be/rpmforge-release/rpmforge-release-0.3.6-
1.el5.rf.i386.rpm
D: ... as /var/tmp/rpm-xfer.qQEt9n
D: failed to open http://packages.sw.be/rpmforge-release/rpmforge-release
-0.3.6-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm:
error: skipping http://packages.sw.be/rpmforge-release/rpmforge-release-
0.3.6-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm - transfer failed - Unknown or unexpected error
D: May free Score board((nil))

wgetting this file and installing is fine.

I then tried another one:
b51:~ rpm -ivh http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/epel/5/i386/epel-
release-5-3.noarch.rpm
Retrieving http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/epel/5/i386/epel-release
-5-3.noarch.rpm

Preparing... ###########################################
[100%]
1:epel-release ###########################################
[100%]

so, downloading via rpm is ok.

This is a known issue with rpm's http code. It doesn't do cookies. It
can't really follow redirects (302 or otherwise) well, and generally
it's a hack. That's why Karanbir said to look at rpm's http handling
code. It was written back when dinosaurs roamed the internet, and was
pounded into rpm with a rather large mallet.

Ah, well, now I understand. Yes, there occurs a redirect. It once used to
work, with apt.sw.be, which obviously wasn't a redirect. Thanks, it's the
first time I've seen this, I think. Or at least so long ago that I forgot
about the last one.
