As I figured, it's probably the latter. While googling around, I stubbled on
some old bug reports related to this. One had this comment:

    "Argh. I figured this out I think. Unfortunately, the '-U' switch
     doesn't check for the existance of a document, it just checks to see
     if the URL is valid (meaning it passes auth and access checks, is in a
     document root or aliased, etc). You have to actually do a
     run_sub_req to find out if the document is servable, and that then
     serves the document, which is not what we want."

If that is the case, I'm out of luck :(
