I connect directly to db.debian.org, and I _think_ I get that message
directly from db.debian.org.

I haven't debugged it too much, but ltrace suggests that I send to
db.debian.org the following (all the strings terminated in \r\n):

--- snip ---
GET /update.cgi?id=cespedes&authtoken=KNX8hGV4Y3zCc,59b05df0db913f332f5a&editdn=uid%3Dcespedes%2Cou%3Dusers%2Cdc%3Ddebian%2Cdc%3Dorg HTTP/1.0

...and db.debian.org replies this way:

--- snip ---
HTTP/1.1 200 OK

Malformed URL entered
--- snip ---

(without a \r or \n in the last line).

BTW, is there any way to change the settings in the developper
database without using the WWW server at db.debian.org?  I remember
there was a `change@db.debian.org', but I don't know how does it work.
