The reason google does this reasigning of URL is because of intro pages using a meta refresh tag.
It makes the browser visit the intro page first to check for plugins etc.
When a server sends a 302 to the spider perhaps the bot was treating this as a meta refresh.
They probably fixed this issue since but the real google jackers were using the meta refresh tag pointing to your page masquerading as an intro page to yours.
This is why google asigns your Title and description to their url.
They are saying to land on this page (one described by title and description) you must go to this page (intro) first.
This became a bug because of the server returning 302 in other cases. I think that bug has been fixed but now that the hijackers understand this (and by playing with it all this time they likely understand it better than anyone) now they are using scripts and who knows what else to exploit this same issue. The issue being that google does not want to send the browser to a page without the reqiured plugin support.
