Indeed, I just tested with a different server project I have here and
there was no problem, so it seems to be specific to how this server is

However, I wouldn't go as far as to say the server is MISconfigured.
Like I said, it works fine with curl, wget, webrowsers, and any other
means I tried. Only url-retrieve failed on it.
Does anyone know how we could look further into it?

In my case it's just a rails server started with:
    bundle exec rails server -p 5100

I used that callback simply to point out the 111 error code. The problem
here is that the request the fails, not how the user handles the failure.
