I've seen this happen too with the cygwin version, but not when using curl on
any other platform/environment.

I even tried to find the reason for this problem without much success on a
debug-session on cygwin. I haven't used a cygwin machine since so I haven't
been able to pinpoint this anymore.

If anyone on cygwin feels like doing some major debugging, this is a good
start... :-)
