I am using url-retrieve and url-retrieve-synchronously to fetch URLs. When the web pages fetched are redirected the callback routines are called with unexpected parameters. I am not quite sure of all the details but the most common error is that the callback parameter for the file name to save instead has the redirection url.

What change would you suggest?

Adding a new parameter to the callback routine so that it still can have the original outfile as a parameter. That way you could continue from the redirect and change the redirected url instead of the original.
