Yes, the lists on sourceforge are no longer reliable. I'm CC'ing the old list
now, taking this over to the new list host instead.

I had another thought and adjusted my patch. The problem with the previous one
was that in Curl_http_done() it always checked the byte-counter and reported
error if nothing had been downloaded. I've now added a variable that gets set
when the connection is to be retried, and then the 0 byte transfer won't cause
an error.

At least there hasn't been a test 91 failure in a while among the auto-tests:
