$ ../src/curl --version
curl 7.11.0-CVS (i686-pc-cygwin) libcurl/7.11.0-CVS OpenSSL/0.9.7c
Protocols: ftp gopher telnet dict ldap http file https ftps
Features: SSL libz NTLM Debug

It's intermittent for me when I run it via If I run it from a
shell prompt, it never happens for me when I use --verbose, and always
happens when I don't. As in:

$ ../src/curl --verbose --anyauth -u

always works, and

$ ../src/curl --anyauth -u mydomain\\myself:secret
curl: (52) Empty reply from server

alawys fails. If I run the same command in gdb, it also fails all the time.
Adding --output log/curl91.out makes the problem disappear too.


$ ../src/curl --version
curl 7.11.0-CVS (win32) libcurl/7.11.0-CVS OpenSSL/0.9.7a
Protocols: ftp gopher telnet dict ldap http file https ftps
Features: SSL NTLM

it fails all the time, with or without --verbose. I haven't built a
debuggable version this way (yet).

I'll see if I can find out what's going on.
