thank you for your answer.

I am linking libcurl dynamically at the moment and I need to support different operating systems as well.
So I would prefer a way without patching. (Static linking might not be a bad idea either (I will think about it ;) ).

If I assume that there is no other way of achieving the reuse of an open TCP-Connection between two handles:

Is there a way to parse the HTTP-Headers using the built-in libcurl functions? Or does one have to parse the Headers manually?
