Segmentation fault in curl 7.5

I'm getting a Segmentaion fault with curl 7.5 on Linux. I compiled with
./configure --prefix=/opt --with-ssl=/opt --disable-shared

and get the following as soon as I use curl with the option "-O":

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
chunk_free (ar_ptr=0x401133a0, p=0x80f7231) at malloc.c:3049
3049 malloc.c: No such file or directory.
(gdb) where

main.c, line 1782 is:

main.c, line 1292 is:
1291: if(config->outfile)
1292: free(config->outfile);
1293: if(config->ftpport)

It happens as well with other compile options.
