Thanks for your help.  The above didn't show all headers, but I found
the bug in the curl function call of the client:

	curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER,
	  array('Content-Type: text/xml',
	    'POST $location HTTP/1.0',
 	    'Host: $site',

The last line should of course be:

        'Host: ' . $site,

Otherwise the header looks like this:

Host: $site

which then gets rejected due to the $ char in hostname.
