Default Pacman 4 XferCommand and 404 errors

Using an XferCommand in pacman.conf causes a bunch of 404 errors while
downloading databases complaining about testing/core/extra.db.sig not
found, but it doesn't do the same if it's using the default download
method without an XferCommand.


An example of that:

A more complete example in [1]

Found similar troubles with curl or aria2, and as said before nothing
without XferCommands.


It might seem quite obvious because the files that the downloaders
complain about doesn't exist in the mirrors. However, this seems odd to
me and after searching the ML and BBS I found nothing about it.
