This bug report will be sent to the Bug-GNU-Emacs mailing list
and the GNU bug tracker at debbugs.gnu.org.  Please check that
the From: line contains a valid email address.  After a delay of up
to one day, you should receive an acknowledgement at that address.

Please write in English if possible, as the Emacs maintainers
usually do not have translators for other languages.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug, and
the precise symptoms of the bug.  If you can, give a recipe
starting from `emacs -Q':

I found some probelem using url-retrieve.  To reproduce the probelem you
can use the following snippet:

(let ((url "";)
      (url-request-method "PUT")
      (url-request-extra-headers '(("Content-Type" . "application/json")))
      (url-request-data "[1 2 3]"))
  (url-retrieve url (lambda (status))))

I am executing the above snippet (using eval-last-sexp at the end of the
exnippet) and it fails every two times (it succeeds and then fails and
then succeeds and then ...).  I got this message when it fails:

error in process sentinel: url-http-end-of-document-sentinel: Symbol's
value as variable is void: url-request-method
error in process sentinel: Symbol's value as variable is void:

I checked above with emacs started by emacs-snapshot -Q.

Furthremore, in some case I have url-request-method set to nil at global
lavel (M-: url-request-method RET gives nil).  And in this case, GET
method is used instead.  I guess this is because of
"(or url-request-method "GET")" in url-http.

I guess it won't matter, but I am using Python tornado as a web server
to check the behavior.  This is the test server I am using:

import tornado.ioloop
import tornado.web

class MainHandler(tornado.web.RequestHandler):

    def get(self):
        print "GET"
        print self.request.body
        self.write("Hello, world")

    def put(self):
        print "PUT"
        print self.request.body

application = tornado.web.Application([
    (r"/", MainHandler),

if __name__ == "__main__":

If Emacs crashed, and you have the Emacs process in the gdb debugger,
please include the output from the following gdb commands:
    `bt full' and `xbacktrace'.
