Tell the port to use the URL you get redirected to perhaps?  Hmmm... I see
that's exactly what you have already done.  Despite the problems you report,
it seems to work fine from here.

happy-idiot-talk:/tmp:% HEAD -uSe http://launchpad.net/pyjama/trunk/0.3/+download/pyjama-
HEAD http://launchpadlibrarian.net/26637583/pyjama-
HEAD http://launchpad.net/pyjama/trunk/0.3/+download/pyjama- --> 302 Moved Temporarily
HEAD http://launchpadlibrarian.net/26637583/pyjama- --> 200 OK

My hunch is that if you're having problems downloading from that URL, then
it's probably something local to you, and the rest of the world won't be
troubled by it.
