Orbit only downloads "download.htm", not the desired file

Sometimes download links do not end with the name of the desired file, e.g. http://someaddress.net/huge-file-I-want.zip. Rather, there is another html file linked right after the filename, e. g. http://someaddress.net/huge-file-I-want.zip/download.

Result? Orbit does not download "huge-file-I-want.zip", but a useless "download.htm" which is only a few KB in size.

Is there any option in the settings that would allow Orbit to further parse the download link? I can download from links that end with /download with the Firefox built-in download manager, but it's less reliable than Orbit and resuming an interrupted download seldom works.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I'm using Orbit version 4.0.0.4 and my OS is Win XP Pro SP3.
