Fwd: libcurl hangs in malloc_consolidate

It was suggested I take this to curl-library instead of curl-users.

Subject: libcurl hangs in malloc_consolidate
To: curl-users_at_cool.haxx.se

We have a set of wrappers for curl that we have been using in our
application for a long time, but it always would only make one access
in the life of a process. We are now doing something fancier,
involving multiple accesses, and we get this particular problem with
the third access attempt. The program goes into curl_easy_perform, and
never comes out, using 20% of the CPU or more. I kill the process with
signal 11, and it always appears to be in the same place. See core
dump below.

We are using curl 7.15.5, and openssl-0.9.7m. This is on Red Hat
Linux, kernel 2.4.21-15.ELsmp .

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
