This change fixes a regression where redirect body would needlessly be decompressed even though it was to be ignored anyway. As it happens this causes secondary issues since there appears to be a bug in apache2 that it in certain conditions generates a corrupt zlib response. The regression was created by commit: dbcced8
To reproduce the issue use a affectred curl version and attempt to:
curl --referer something --compressed -L http://morph.zone
With this change the problem disappears (read: the server bug is happily ignored).
