Funny. I'm using debian unstable and I don't get these problems. And I use
valgrind when I run the test cases...

Yes, I always run configure --disable-shared when I debug curl using the test
suite since I find it annoying to not have all the symbols already when gdb is
started on curl.

Why is this saying "@plt" here?

Further, can you build with --enable-debug and rerun the test and see with
more details exactly what causes the SIGSEGV in that function?

As you can see in the source code, Curl_Transfer() doesn't do very much...
