What libcurl version on what OS?

What happens when it stops? What does curl_easy_perform() return then?

Whoa, if you fetch the return code (and CURLOPT_ERRORMESSAGE) it might
actually tell you more about the problem.

The code looks fine to me otherwise.

POST data should not be and is not in the header in case, POST data is in the
request-body. The above snippet will put the data in the request-body, and so
will curl_formadd() and CURLOPT_HTTPPOST, but formadd makes multipart
formposts, which your current code does not.
