Can you show us a command line against a public URL that repeats this problem?

Anyway, it would help if you'd use --trace-ascii in your problematic case as
then we could analyze that log more when this error 28 occurs. And if you'd
upgrade to 7.14.0 and --trace-time it would be even better.

I think you were clear, but it still sounds odd.
