strange "Couldn't resolve host" error

   I have a program written using pycurl which is
consistently producing what seems like an unusual
error. When accessing a particular URL of the form
'', I get a curl exception #6:
"Couldn't resolve host ''".

   It seems unusual to me that there would be a DNS
issue when I'm accessing the site by IP. Anyone have
a spare clue on what could be happening? I'm using
libcurl 7.9.8 w/ SSL and pycurl on a redhat
7.3 system.
