Ouch. But isn't this because of the layering problem I mentioned? The curl
memory debug system sees no socket close but it did track the socket cretion
so thus it thinks this is a socket leak, but in reality NSS has closed it...

The only decent fix for this false positive - I think - is to make some kind
of fake call to the socket close for the sake of the memory debugging.
