I would suggest you try with a modern libcurl version first to see if this is
a problem we already fixed. You're using a very outdated version with lots of
security problems and many bugs we've since corrected.

If not, I would be interested in a small example snippet that repeats this
problem against a public URL.

Of course, you can always just debug libcurl's sending/receiving and see how
it differs between the windows versions and try to figure out why one of them
is different.
