After a few private mails, I've come to the conclusion that this problem
might be because of the HTTP-code "100 Continue" that the server sends.

HTTP 1.1 clearly specifies how to behave on error 100, but libcurl does not
(yet) follow that spec. Read more about this on section 8.2.3 in RFC26216:

This affects POST and PUT requests. curl 7.6.1 and earlier versions use HTTP
1.0 why this won't occur for them.
