A bug!

You need to tell us a lot more details if you want us to help you debug this.
As always, start with telling us your libcurl version, openssl version and
operating system. Then tell us how you do to repeat this problem, and if
you're going for the gold medal: provide a source code snippet that when used
makes the problem appear!
