I know it's a year late, but I tracked this one down to the http-get
code shutting down the write end of the socket for non-keep-alive
connections.  This appears to stop the bytes being written from
readching their destination!  Perhaps we would need to uncork the socket
or something in the future; surely someone performance-oriented will
come along later and fix it properly.  Anyway, fetching
now works properly.
