Problem seems to be in Privoxy or luasocket and not murgaLua. Some sites seem to work ok and others don't.

murgaLua.getHostOsName() returns "linuxStatic" on Linux. Documentation states 'Returns the OS murgaLua was build for, currently one of "linux", "windows" or "macos"'.

alien.platform serves the same purpose, but it yields 'linux' and murgaLua.getHostOsName() yields 'linuxStatic'.
