Re: cURL crashes when nameserver is down

a few days ago, I placed a message in this list that a call to
curl_easy_perform crashes when our nameserver is down. Since Daniel told
me that cURL - build without any special options - uses the ordinary
system name resolve call and this one maybe causes the problems, I tried
to repeat things on another machine and was not able to crash the system

Thus, it seems that not cURL but our SuSE 7.1 has some problems,

thanks for your hint, Daniel,
