spurious signals

i've upgraded from 7.10.2 to 7.10.3 in my production environnement last
friday and my application got stopped quite often so i had to downgrade.
I tracked the problem down to url.c :
@@ -2516,8 +2550,7 @@
   /* if we have a user but no password, ask for one */
- if(conn->bits.user_passwd &&
- !data->state.passwd[0] ) {
+ if(conn->bits.user_passwd && !data->state.passwdgiven ) {
                          "password:", data->state.passwd,
my program runs in background (it's basically a proxy) so asking for
a password on stdin isnt really a good idea. I've tried to set
the curlgetpasswd function to something less interactive but i still
got stop signals. Maybe i missed another stdin/out/err read case
somewhere else ?
