Some Patience please...
We are happy that it works so far and now we have to dig out why it
works on the Mac and partially on mySTEP but not on GNUstep some issue
Possibly simply that nobody has implemented http download using it

Without going back to check, my recollection is that mySTEP has a
skeletal implementation implementation of the recent macOS-X URL
handling classes with most methods doing nothing, but with just
enough implemented to download simple xml pages, while gnustep has a
more complete implementation (for example the code for basic and
digest authentication is present and working in GNUstep and used by
NSURLHandl) but misses the functionality to actually make
NSURLConnection work. Most likely copying a little bit of download
logic from mySTEP would be sufficient to get it working.
Alternatively the SimpleWebKit code could just use NSURL or
NSURLHandle to download stuff ... a quick fix, but it would be better
to enhance gnustep.
