Summary: https transfer dead slow

Initial Comment:
curl 7.7.3 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) libcurl 7.7.3 (OpenSSL

Transferring anything via https (for example a small
image,, size 1.2kB)
takes about
16-17 seconds. Transferring the same image via http
takes less than
0.1 seconds. These 16-17 seconds seem to be
independent of the
actual content size.
Tested with curl 7.7.1, 7.7.2 and 7.7.3
