skins.minecraft.net/MinecraftSkins redirects to cape when no skin exists

      Description

      This isn't a "New Feature" request, but I can't select anything else - sorry for that.

      Description:

      Whenever a user has no skin but does have a cape,

      http://skins.minecraft.net/MinecraftSkins/<username>
      

      redirects to the cape instead of returning a 404.

      For users with no skin and no cape, a 404 is returned.
      For users with a skin, it redirects to the proper skin texture.

      Reproducing

      Find a player that has no skin but still has a cape.

      Details

      I know that I can get the proper skin (i.e. no skin) when I know the UUID, but we're using skins.minecraft.net to avoid additional HTTP requests

      I also posted some details and a possible explanation of the bug here: https://github.com/Jake0oo0/crafatar/issues/44
