Just following up for posterity. The livecode team figured out that setting the httpheaders to empty solved the problem, or at least part of it. I was setting them to connect to the API that sends the link for the image. Now setting them to empty before trying to download the image partly works.
It works for "put url"; the image file shows up and isn't corrupted. It hasn't worked for libURLdownloadToFile; the image file doesn't show up.
