Hi Ray

Thank you very much for your reply.

I have looked at the Github page you pointed me to but unfortunately, it is
not clear to me how I can try out the fix. I can't see any download links on
the page. I am not familiar with the Github website. I would therefore be
very grateful if you could clarify for me what I need to do. Are you able to
provide me with a link to an updated version of curl.exe which I can run on
a 32-bit version of Windows?

I hope you understand but for privacy reasons, I would prefer not to provide
my last name.

Thank you very much.

Kind regards

Yes this is an issue. I've opened
which has more information and a proposed fix if you want to try it out.
It fixes the issue for me. Also if you would like to give us your last
name for the docs/THANKS file I will add that to the Reported-by line in
the commit.
