I'm not sure what we can do to make that more clear. Any suggestions? Even the
discussions in #457 seem to not really know what specific versions that
trigger this problem or what they were built to use. What libcurl version and
what TLS library and version get this problem?

Is it possible to bisect to a specific range that causes problems or not
causes problems?

And if we can narrow that down, can you help us write up a stand-alone
libcurl-using app that uses libcurl is way similar to how rtorrent does it so
that we can attempt to reproduce the problem without having to debug the
actual rtorrent - which I just guess is a bit complicated for us curl people
who have no clues about its design.
