My appologies. I think I'm starting to get damaged by the constant feed of
"it does't work" mails. I'll try to behave now! ;-)

Error 23 is documented to mean:

  "Write error. Curl couldn't write data to a local filesystem or similar."

The truth is that there's a bit of confusion internally on when that error
code is returned, because it can mean both that it couldn't write to a file
or that it could write to a remote server.
