Well, I know this isn't terribly helpful, but "a bug in getPage" is really the only thing that comes to mind.  Or, some legal-but-unusual behavior in getPage which triggers a bug on the EC2 side of things.

The only thing I can suggest is to start wireshark, do a byte-for-byte comparison of the requests that getPage and httplib emit, and see if you can find any of the differences which might be significant.  I would look carefully at any place in the request or response where data is being quoted or unquoted.  Based on the other stuff you've said, nothing jumps out at me.
