No proxies but I found several addresses in 192.168.56.*
This is the VirtualBox (version 4.1.24 installed) Host-Only Network
adapter. I have disabled it, and boom curl resolves immediately. A bug
in VirtualBox I would guess. Some similar issue is still open [1].

Thank you very much for the helping point.
