Oops, sorry for not RTFM !

It's good to know I was not doing something wrong with the code.
Do you know why this happen ? It's a bit strange...

| that DLL use the FILE *. If you set CURLOPT_FILE you must also use
| CURLOPT_WRITEFUNCTION as well to set a function that writes the file,
even

| there's also this text:
|
| NOTE: If you're using libcurl as a win32 DLL, you MUST use the
| CURLOPT_WRITEFUNCTION if you set this option.
|
| Of course, I should correct that example so that it'll work on windows too
| from the start.
