Hm, it tries to read from negative offsets? That seems completely weird.

Actually with your patch nothing does work as expected for me:

With my version:

lucy:~/curl/tests egger$ ../src/curl -r 1-4 file://`pwd`/log/
2345lucy:~/curl/tests egger$

With your patch:

lucy:~/curl.test/tests egger$ ../src/curl -r 1-4 file://`pwd`/log/

This is on Mac OS 10.5.1 (Intel) BTW.

I don't have time to look into this the next couple of days. But I'll
try to
get back to that after.
