just for the record, it turns out that the problem was not in the curl library
itself, but in the php bindings for it.

the constant CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER was being initialised to the wrong value, (for
some reason it was being set to CURLOPT_HEADER) and thus the code to modify
the headers was never actually getting called at all.

of course, now that it is getting called, it seems to be a bit buggy, and i'm
going to look a little closer at it before submitting a patch. it currently
only works if you pass in an array, and it seems that it would make more sense
if you could pass in a string. at the very least it shoudln't crash, like it
does now.

by the way, should patches for the php bindings for curl go to the curl people
or the php people?
