I'm able to get the data about 50% of tries. It almost seems that it  
works on every second attempt. I thought this might be significant,  
as the service leaves the connection open, so libUrl was re-using the  
same connection for subsequent attempts, and these were generally  
failing. It would then use a new connection for the next attempt, and  
these generally succeed. But there are exceptions to the pattern, so  
I don't think it is significant.


I'll try and test again later if I have access to an older version of  
OS X.
