To me, it looks like the 'err' field has been overwritten by "something" when
it is about to be used. Either that, or perhaps you have no stderr in your
environment? Does it behave differently if you use CURLOPT_STDERR to direct
the output somewhere?

Otherwise, contact me privately (cut off "-curl" from the address I use here)
with ssh info and I could have a look.
