Well, could you get a recent 7.9.2 pre-release and try with instead? It has
that patch built-in and it would be interesting to know if that shows any
problems. I must admit that I didn't check the patch you attached in all
details. Maybe it was incomplete in some way. Maybe it was just plain wrong.

Sounds wise. I don't think going on ventures with loose patches will get you
very far. It'll only cause you problems such as this. The bug is known, it is
in the Debian bug database, it is in the curl bug tracker and it is mentioned
in the curl CHANGES file. It'll be fixed in the next release.

I appreciate tests of course.
