We seem to get funny reports on libcurl every now and then indicating this, 
but none of those cases have yet actually resulted in me having been able to 
pinpoint any specific bad software. I think it's just a result of the fact 
that there are a bunch of different implementations out there, and some of 
those softwares have (had) bugs and some of those buggy implementations are 
still existing out there.
