Gears error on a 301 redirect

A quick error report. Recently I started using a CDN and mod_rewrote all image files to 301 redirect to the CDN host with this .htaccess rule in Wordpress root:

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} SimpleCDN
RewriteRule .* - [L]
RewriteRule (.*\.(gif|jpe?g|png))$ http://cdn.beerpla.net.lg1x3.simplecdn.net/$1 [R=301,L]

I am now trying to enable Gears and it's failing on

Local storage status:  Error: Download of 'http://beerpla.net/wp-admin/images/align-center.png' failed, status code 301.

This behavior is expected and Wordpress should just follow the redirect to cache the file. There's a chance it's a Gears issue that cannot be resolved with Wordpress, in which case I'll submit a bug report to them.

Its a Gears issue, In that it doesnt like redirects.

My advice would be to disable CDN for the admin dir, since Gears will cache those images anyway.
