There seem to be some other problem with curl.exe, chunked-encoding and
OpenSSL. This command
> curl -v --trace-ascii trace.fil -otest.ssl

produces a test.ssl file with 1014 bytes of '‼' (ascii 19). The trace looks suspicious

<= Recv data, 5 bytes (0x5)
0000: 0

But tracing to stdout is no problem !? Looks like the 0-byte chunk messes
up something.

AFAICS other ssl connections are fine. I cannot see that it's related to my
patch. Seem to surface by accident.

curl.exe built with MingW.
