So tell us how to repeat this!

And also, OpenSSL 0.9.7a was released in February 2003. Don't you think they
might've fixed a memory leak or two since? I mean, how can you even tell that
libcurl is to blame here?

To me it seems insane to even consider chasing after problems while using such
an old component.
