Default Bug#619586: apt: what(): std::bad_alloc (was: cdn.debian.net as a project service?)

Package: apt
Version: 0.8.13
Severity: normal

Hi there!

The discussion started on debian-devel@l.d.o, specifically:

^^^^^^^
The method is singular and mirros.debian.org does not exist. Anyway, my
sid freezes when trying to use it (top shows 3.1g VIRT and 1.6g RES
memory) and then apt dies:
=====
root@gismo:~# echo "deb mirrors://mirrors.debian.org/mirror sid main" >/etc/apt/sources.list
root@gismo:~# apt-get update
E: The method driver /usr/lib/apt/methods/mirrors could not be found.

root@gismo:~# echo "deb mirror://mirrors.debian.org/mirror sid main" >/etc/apt/sources.list
root@gismo:~# apt-get update
0% [Working]terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::bad_alloc'
what(): std::bad_alloc
E: Method mirror has died unexpectedly!
E: Sub-process mirror received signal 6.

root@gismo:~# echo "deb mirror://mirror.debian.org/mirror sid main" >/etc/apt/sources.list
root@gismo:~# apt-get update
0% [Working]terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::bad_alloc'
what(): std::bad_alloc
E: Method mirror has died unexpectedly!
E: Sub-process mirror received signal 6.

root@gismo:~# find /var/lib/apt/mirrors/
/var/lib/apt/mirrors/
/var/lib/apt/mirrors/partial

root@gismo:~#
=====

This is on an updated sid with 2GB RAM plus 2GB swap, on an Intel X25-M
80GB SSD partitioned as cryptsetup/LVM/ext4.

Thx, bye,
Gismo / Luca
