Match Play. Red trails 1-2 to 5. Should Red redouble? If redoubled, should White take?

A classic match play doubling situation. Red will behind 4-away vs 1-away (with 18% nmatch-winning chances) if he loses this game or he will have lost the match if he loses a gammon.

What would be a huge beaver for money becomes a correct double and take at this match score. Not redoubling is actually an error. Of course, White has a trivial take. Hopefully nobody would drop this as White!
