User info Filter not triggered from one specific server
Please help, I am despairing..

I want files with name: *.otrkey to go into a specific folder. This works fine for all servers I tested -- except one. There, ASF reacts as if no filter matched and uses the last used folder, also if used from another filter for other filetypes.

This is a typical URL for such a file: (Click on the "Hier" in "Hier klicken um den Download zu beginnen.")
Note: the server allows only 3 downloads per hour, more tries return 403 - Forbidden instead of a file URL.

The resulting file to download has a URL that is similar to this:

The subdomain befor "" varies, so does the part after "/dl/" before the file name (a download ID?).

I have tried filtering domain (variations on "" and "", with and witout regexp) as well as file name (variations on ".otrkey"), to no avail.

The issue is reproducible with this simple filter

Filters Domain
= Regexp.
File name
= Regexp.
Local folder
If the file doesn't match any filter, save to:
The last folder
This folder:
Use the last folder if the file is from the same domain

Downloads of the same file with the same name from other sources work fine.
The problem exists
- if the download is started automatically after the countdown,
- if I click the link to download, and
- if I copy the link from the text field to the adress bar manually.
Therefore I guess something in the file URL makes ASF hiccup.

I'm at the end of my wits -- any ideas what to do?

EDIT: ASF 1.0.5bRev129, FF 45.0
