Re: --interface option doesn't work?

Curl was indeed ipv6 enabled:

curl 7.9.6 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) libcurl 7.9.6 (OpenSSL 0.9.6b) (ipv6 enabled)

I don't care for ipv6 support at this time, so I recompiled again
with --disable-ipv6 option and it works fine now. Thanks for the hint on
what was wrong, as this "bug" really made my hair grey.
