Wow. I don't see what libcurl would do to cause this. I would suspect
"something else". Can you check what the extra byte is and where in the stream
it ends up?

I've not seen this myself on any of my systems.

I would say that too indicate that libcurl is not to blame, since the actual
data reading code is next to identical for HTTP and FTP.
