After upgrading to curl 7.35.0 and rebuilding transmission torrent server and client, the client could no longer connect to localhost:9091, it now always results in a connection refused. The only way I could get it to connect was to remove one of the following lines from my /etc/hosts:
     ::1             localhost
    fe80::1%lo0     localhost
But those are standard mappings, so removing them could result in more widespread issues. I was instead able to work arround the issue by having transmission connect to instead of localhost.
I ran into another issue that is probably related, when trying to install a new version of a perl module that wraps curl (LWP::Protocol::Net::Curl). The module includes a test to verify error-handling by trying to connect to a non-existent server at, but curl is somehow instead connecting to my local webserver on port 80. Even with the standard curl client. No other http client I tried experiences this problem, the others all result in the expected "can't connect" error.
    $ curl
    <html><body><h1>It works!</h1></body></html>
    $ curl
    curl: (7) Failed to connect to port 1337: Connection refused
Neither of these problems existed with 7.34.0. I'm running OS X 10.9, curl @7.35.0_0+ssl is installed from Macports.
