looks like my problem was due to a file that is opened, but is not closesd

closing this file correctly seems to have sold the problem.
Thank you Daniel for your help

Another question : what does the error "couldn't resolve host 'xxxxxx'"
mean ? does it mean the server didn't answer ?

It would be good if you tried that, it could possibly rule out curl
completely and prove this to be a purely SSL-related problem.
