Glad you found it.

Hmmm, it looks like libcurl doesn't actually do any sanity checking right
now on the passed in pointers. This is a problem I've seen come up before,
so it may be worthwhile to add some kind of check for a garbage pointer.
The curl_httppost structure is part of the public API so we can't add a
magic number field, but there's enough redundancy in the structure that
we could add some simple sanity checks.
