Hi folks,

Sometimes, when running showHTMLTitle.nse, the default page (at which
the script is targeted) is not at "/" and the host returns HTTP Status
301 or 302.  On the basis that the server may be telling us where the
default page is at, the attached patch allows the script to follow the
redirect (once only) as long as it's at the same host.
Of course, there could be some other reason for the redirect, such as
preventing access to "/" based on User-Agent, but I thought I'd throw
the patch out there in case...

Looks good, Jah!  I've applied it.
