Bot name ?
Have you a bot name like w3c_validator or googlebot ?

Some sites must make two redirects to check some ability with javascript and write internal vars in php.

you detect this and follow, but you should do not - that was only for real users.

Bots like

$config['bots']=array('w3c_validator','googlebot','msnbot','slurp','gigabot','scrubby','robozil​a','nutch','ia_archiver','baiduspider','yahoo-mmcrawler','psbot','asterias','yahoo-blogs','SeitenReport');

are disabled automatically for redirects and so it was a good idea to set your name is this method.

RE: Bot name ?
Yep, sorry, didn't get a chance to reply earlier. I don't recommend special-treating WebPagetest traffic though (other than filtering from your back-end reports) because the whole point IS to measure the user experience and if you send regular users through 2 redirects you should do that for WebPagetest as well.

Thanks,
