Issue #11322 has been updated by Eugene Chaikin.


i've had a similar issue with `open('http://www.replayjeans.com/us/shop/product/women/jumpers-knitwear/neoprene-printed-sweatshirt/pc/48/c/61/sc/-1/1962')`
which i solved modifying D.E. Akers workaround a bit:

~~~

url = 'http://www.replayjeans.com/us/shop/product/women/jumpers-knitwear/neoprene-printed-sweatshirt/pc/48/c/61/sc/-1/1962'
uri = URI(url)
res = Net::HTTP.get_response(uri)
cookie = res['Set-Cookie']
req = Net::HTTP::Get.new(uri)
req['Cookie'] = cookie
res = Net::HTTP.start(uri.hostname, uri.port) { |http| http.request(req) }

~~~

However there is another issue that i can't resolve.
Some requests don't end up in a redirection loop, and `open url` returns not the page i expect.
If I apply redirect loop workaround for this case, i get the correct page.
Tried to google but no avail so far.

Trying to download [this file](http://apps.london.ca/OpenData/ShapeFiles_Zipped/2010_skateboard_parks_shp.zip) from [this website](http://www.london.ca/city-hall/open-data/Pages/Open-Data-Data-Catalogue.aspx) with [`OpenUri`](http://ruby-doc.org/stdlib-2.2.2/libdoc/open-uri/rdoc/OpenURI.html) fails with the runtime error "HTTP redirection loop".
Here is how I can reproduce the error:
