After trying 2.7.3, I get different behavior on XP and on Windows 7.  Of
note, in XP I was asked to accept a certificate.  In Windows 7, I was not.

XP logs:

(11:08:50) *certificate:* Successfully verified certificate for
login.yahoo.com
(11:08:50) *util:* request constructed
(11:08:50) *util:* Response headers: 'HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found
