Yeah this is an error with the theme and is harmless. It will just 
ignore any <cutdown> specified because it doesn't make sense to use it 
if the text is scrolling. It's not the problem here though.

I can reproduce this as well using master. Very strange it seemed to 
work once then always fails after that. The error code is zero so it can 
only mean we are receiving a zero length reply.
