The change in r204795 added support on WebCore for redirect post CORS-preflight requests.
This enabled to follow cross-origin redirections for not-simple requests, through preflight checks.
We were not processing the non-simple request on http/tests/xmlhttprequest/redirections-and-user-headers.html fails because of this, but now they are being processed.
I don t think such test fails because of that, but it definitively triggered some missing features of the GTK port.
Please, Youenn, if you have time take a look.
This code should be cross-platform but hey, we never know!
Looking at the current GTK result, it does not seem related to CORS/preflight since one same-origin redirection test is not passing either (Authentication header present).
Is r204795 regressing the test in GTK?

Not exactly. The test was already failing before r204795 but with a different error. I think the new errors come from the fact that after r204795 we allow same-origin redirections for non-simple requests.
My request for review would be more to get some clue about what webkitgtk could be missing to cause the current failure of this test.
