Oh well, I've now fixed the 26 accurate Coverity findings as my recent commits
should tell (some of the reported problems were fixed with a single commit,
why you won't see all 26 problems mentioned in the commit logs). None was very
serious. They were mostly potential NULL-references and some minor resource
leaks in the curl tool.

Still an impressively powerful source code scanner.
