So do you consider it a bug? Or should it rather be documented for the
moment? Does it work the same way on other platforms? (I tested on
w32, forgot to mention that.)

Maybe you misunderstod me. If I do the call to
url-retrieve-synchronously from the command loop it finishes very
quickly (in this case), but if I do the same thing in a timer it
hangs.

Thanks. Yes, I already did and that solved my problem, but the bug
report is not about that.
