Please describe the problem.

When running a command like git annex copy --not --in bucket --to bucket, I got:

fatal: bad config file line 1 in /home/jim/tmp/git-annex14898.tmp

I caught git-annex14898.tmp before it was deleted and it contained an HTML error page. I have a remote https://git.example.com/jim/annex.git, and it appears that git-annex is requesting https://git.example.com/jim/annex.git/config. My server returns a 401 Forbidden and an error page for that URL, but git-annex tries to use the response as a config file anyway.
