Hello Daniel

As described in my last email, I could fix the performance problem by compiling openssl with asm support.

I am pretty sure, the delay happened in curl_global_init or curl_global_cleanup. My application was even 5x slower, if I did not execute a single rest call except those two.

Strangely, the command line tool is not slower ..
