I've now run the test 10,000 times without a failure. This on a machine
where the test almost always failed previously. So it appears the
problem is indeed fixed. Thanks!

This was using the curl-7.11.1-20040206 snapshot.

When I extracted the source from CVS and tried to build, buildconf
failed with these messages:

buildconf: autoconf version 2.59 (ok)
buildconf: autoheader version 2.59 (ok)
buildconf: automake version 1.8.2 (ok)
buildconf: libtool version 1.5.2 (ok)
buildconf: running libtoolize
buildconf: running aclocal
aclocal: 67: macro `AM_PROG_LIBTOOL' not found in library
The command 'aclocal' failed

(It seems AM_PROG_LIBTOOL is now considered obsolete.)

Also, the box at the top right of
refers to "Daily Builds". It might be more accurate to say "Daily
Snapshots", since they seem to contain just source code.
