Then I suggest you switch over to building a plain sftp test app using
non-blocking sockets directly with libssh2 and see if that works to figure out
if the problem is within libcurl or in libssh2... The libssh2 package comes
with a few sample apps that should be fine.

I'll also recommend you use a recent libssh2 version off their CVS or daily
snapshot as some bugs have been fixed since the latest release.
