My advice in a single word: simplify.

I can't follow your description, I think your code is really hard to digest.

You say your libcurl-using app doesn't work properly when doing a PUT? Then
write the app to only do PUT to a generic HTTP server somewhere and make that
work first before you integrate into your other logic.

Can you provide us with a full recipe we can use and see if we get the problem
as well?
