I have just committed a version that works. Probelm is, what makes it
work is the introduction of a few 'if (verbose) printf ...' statements
in check_http (line 478 and line 518).

If I comment those out, it segfaults again.

I cannot for the life of me think how a print statement that's not even
run could stop a segfault. And I expect it's not portable. But if anyone
has seen that kind of strangeness before, feel free to pipe up.

I do not consider this issue closed.
