So how does the bug appear for you? You're not using the data assuming it is
zero terminated, right? And you're writing the output as binary?

"doesn't arrive always complete"? Does it means this works sometimes? And what
happens when it isn't complete? Are you sure the server is always providing
the data correctly?

What libcurl version on what operating system?
