We're all volunteers so there's of course no guarantee at all.

Add printf() lines, use a debugger and single-step through relevant parts of
the code and try to spot where the logic is wrong.

Given that the bug is still a bit vague, it's hard to give any specific
advice. Does the bug happen if you enable NTLM, use multi interface and send
formpost data to any server or is it specific to just this particular one?
