This all sounds very strange to me too. It would rather indicate that the
problem would be in the curl app's write callback or at least in how it gets
data or similar.

Possibly, using --trace-ascii using 7.15.5 compared to 7.16.2 will show you
how the callback gets data differenly and it might offer some clue. But if
the zero is appended last, it sounds as if just the final call to the callback
provides the wrong size?
