Re-adding infra, as I believe there might be a more global issue here. for
example, when I visit http://httpd.apache.org/download.cgi and select any
particular mirror and then click "Change", the mirror I selected is
represented into the URL of the fetched page (in the Preferred= CGI query
param), but the mirror I selected is *not* the one chosen as the preferred one.
