I think it's a bug of Akamai. ACNG does reeencode the URL which was sent
back in the intermediate redirect response - however, this is basically
legal URL encoding, no magic done there. Simple HTTP clients would use
the URL from redirect response as-is and therefore never trigger that
condition.

Maybe they do some (broken?) verification against the uber-clever pseudo
signature that they append there, maybe without considering URL
encoding, I am not sure. Needs closer investigation.

Or I could a special mode (to be enabled with a switch) which would
disable any sanity checks on that URLs.
