7.5 Problems

Just upgraded to 7.5:

        curl 7.5 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) libcurl 7.5 (SSL 0.9.5)

One of my scripts uses some rather horrid curl incarnations like the one
below (written before the pretty perl easy opts stuff!). As you will
see below it is giving Segmentation fault - but I haven't seen any core files.

I'll try to do some more useful tests tonite from home time permitting.
