Most the of the transfer loop is in lib/transfer.c, but this is a formpost
which is a bit tricky. The fread() is set to a function in lib/formdata.c

I managed to repeat this problem (even without SSL):

$ curl -vi -F "file=@BIGFILE" [URL]/postit.cgi -o dump

BIGFILE needs to be bigger than ~40K, and postit.cgi just does this:


print "Content-Type: text/html\n\n";

while (<STDIN>) {
    print $_;

But darnit, I haven't been able to figure out why this hangs yet... :-/
