Unfortunately, that's the problem.

Amazingly, it still exists, and amazingly, curl still supports it. But it was
broken for years until it was removed completely in 7.15.2. I assumed that
was the end of it, but someone re-added support (working this time), in
7.21.2. So, upgrading should solve this problem!
