Does it repeatedly fail after 79 days? To me it sounds like some kind of leak,
like a file descriptor one or similar and then a bad error check. Did you try
running your app with valgrind to check for memory-related problems or leaks?

We've done many updates to libcurl since, and I find it rather pointless
trying to debug a problem with such an old version.
