There are other fields that are different. The Accept: line could certainly
cause a different behaviour. The line you show in your logs implies that
you're using an old version of curl; the default Accept: was changed to
a wild card in more recent versions and that itself might be enough. It
could still be the user agent. Keep adding Mozilla or wget-like headers
until it starts working.
