Does FreeMiNT have a track record of a fine socket/network layer otherwise?

Which libcurl version? Can you write up a small example code that repeats the
problem? Is this happening with HTTP only or other protocols too? Against a
fine public URL that we can run the small example code against?

It does sound odd, and I'm sorry to say that I mostly suspect the OS/network
layer to not be fully socket compatible to the extent that libcurl uses - but
that's just an early guess.
