It's not entirely obvious what's going on from your log. I'm afraid you'll 
need to debug this yourself. Maybe the size is not known yet immediately after 
stream_UrlNew() returns, but that would be odd.

You should perhaps not rely on the size anyway. In HTTP it is not always 
known, depending how the server generates the resource.
