That's _your_ theory, and I cannot explain it nor reproduce it. ;)
The problem looked interesting enough to run some "grep"s on Yum's core
source code, but in several places it searches for a prefix "ftp://" or
"ftp:" and doesn't seem to be dumb enough to drop a "http://" prefix
It's also somewhat strange that it would be able to download the repo
metadata (after a "yum clean metadata") from the *same* http URL but fail
only when downloading packages.

More testing might lead to something. :) You could also:
- remove all optional Yum plugins (I see you've installed several)
- modify the baseurl for [lingeek] as a check that it's really lingeek.repo
that is being used
- insert some debug messages into Yum a bit (afterall, it's Python source
code you're running)
