I didn't mean it to be harsh, sorry. I only meant that that bug is the
OP's bug report concerning the very bug in this thread and not
some reference to a known, preexisting problem for which there was
already a bug report filed. IOW the OP pointing to his own bug report is
kind of self-referential. But maybe all he intended to say by "This is
Debian bug #942478" was: I've filed a bug report on this problem (for
which we can only thank him).

Still, I don't get why a Debian apt repository would require some recent
browser user agent string to permit ingress; something seems to be 
missing from this picture.
