curl_slist_append() is a public libcurl function that has worked the same way
for many years and that's also unmodified since a long time.

It seems likely that this crash is caused by your application's use of this

If you think differently, then please provide a stand-alone example source
code for a program that shows this problem reproduced.

This function is frequently used by applications and even internally by
libcurl itself and yet nobody else has reported a problem with this function
and all our own tests and CI show it working just fine.
