I've installed HTdig a few days ago and it is working perfectly! Well,
not perfect, if that was true I guess I wouldn't be posting this
message. Everything works great and it indexes everything except for
one part of the site (www.welshcob.nl).

On www.welshcob.nl/forum/ I have Phorum (www.phorum.org) running. This
is a PHP script (index.php). Since I have only one forum at the moment
the only thing the index.php script does is sending out a Location
header. The problem is that there is a ? in the uri that it sends out.
Here is a piece of the output of rundig -vvv

pick: www.welshcob.nl, # servers = 1
10:10:1:http://www.welshcob.nl/forum/: Retrieval command for
http://www.welshcob.nl/forum/: GET /for
um/ HTTP/1.0
User-Agent: htdig/3.1.5 (bartvb@vanbragt.com)

[etc etc]

So the problem here is the 'Rejected Not an http or relative link'
message. I don't know if this redirection is according to the
standards, if it isn't please tell me and I will change the script to
handle it differently. However if this is a valid Location header than
I would like to know how I can fix this..

HTdig is indexing other pages that have questionmarks in them (i.e.

Thanks a lot in advance!
