Testing 7.9.3-pre1

just testing curl-7.9.3-pre1...

First, it happens that curl finishes with an error but without an error
message. Could it be that this is the case if the timout occurs during
dns lookup?

    # curl -v --connect-timeout 1
    * Closing connection #0
    curl: (28)

Second, reading from an SSL-connection does not work correctly. I think
that libcurl now immediately returns from an SSL_read, because the socket
is no longer blocking:

    $ curl -v -t 30
    * SSL connection using RC4-MD5
    * Server certificate:

You can test this by calling and following the
redirects and frames in the resulting html-code.
