D'oh! Thanks. I was mistaking curl's Accept: */* for Accept-encoding. Clearly tinkering with HTTP is the wrong thing to do first-thing monday morning…

A small note on SSH over port 22: provided you've got a good root password and your users don't have terrible passwords, just running fail2ban (or something similar) is enough to keep out crack attempts. I found it really annoying to keep SSH on another port.
