Sure. I checked a little more in-depth and it looks like the difference is
caused by the value of the 'Connection' HTTP header. When it's 'close' the
server fails to return a body, when the value is 'keep-alive' it performs as
expected.

In the below trace I have elided (marked with []) irrelevant bits for
clarity:

[[[

  GET /en/Home.htm HTTP/1.0
  Host: athrasoft.com
  Connection: close

  HTTP/1.1 200 OK
  []
  Content-Length: 15617

  Connection closed by foreign host.
