There is a slight difference in the User-Agent request header (as reported by tcpdump -s 1500 -X): On Lenny (works) ================ User-Agent: lwp-request/0.810 On Sid (breaks) =============== User-Agent: lwp-request/5.834 libwww-perl/5.834 So it seems there is some filter on wiki.debian.org that refuses some user agents. HTTP/1.1 (section 14.43) explicitly allows multiple entries in this header: The field can contain multiple product tokens (section 3.8) and comments identifying the agent and any subproducts which form a significant part of the user agent Cc-ing debian-www for comment.
