We can definitely improve upon how the error gets reported.

    Error contacting: http://blah.blah.blah:/archive-contents
    error in process filter: peculiar error: 404 [2 times]

To the user, the first error gives sufficient hint for futher action.
I wonder what the second error says which the first error already
doesn't say.  Or may be there is indeed two errors and not one error
as I surmise.

ps: I wonder what contacting a file means :-P.
