The blocking makes sense: if you ask a port to read an indeterminately
long string, it will eventually block until the connection is closed.

Perhaps get the Content-Length header from the response, and
(read-string n) where n is the Content-Length?

Not saying it isn't an http-egg bug, just that the symptom of the
problem seems logical from a network-socket perspective.
