When accessing https://melpa.org (an nginx webserver) through a
http-proxy (by setting url-proxy-services, say to privoxy), url-http
hangs when parsing headers. apparently the connection is dropped with
emacs master. I'm on this commit on master

GNU Emacs 28.0.50 (build 1, x86_64-pc-linux-gnu, X toolkit, cairo
 version 1.16.0, Xaw3d scroll bars) of 2021-06-15

#ELISP> (setq url-proxy-services '(("http" . "localhost:8118") ("https" . 
ELISP> (url-retrieve-synchronously (url-generic-parse-url "https://melpa.org/";))
#<buffer  *http melpa.org:443*>

And the buffer looks like


Process melpa.org connection broken by remote peer

The connection is broken and the "\nProcess HOST connection broken by
remote peer\n" line in the buffer means the spins without parsing the

Now proxied requests are asynchronous.

If I (setf (url-asynchronous url) t) in lisp/url/url.el:
(url-retrieve-internal), as per the appended patch, then eventually
make-network-process gets called with a :nowait t, and the connection
pulls through.

But I'm not sure if this is the right thing or if the problem is
elsewhere as this problem doesn't happen on older emacs - say from

Do others see this problem?

[BTW I haven't seen paul eggert on the lists lately, any word if he is
still too busy for emacs?]
