Joe included his analysis of what's causing the failure, as well as a patch that fixes it here: http://svn.haxx.se/dev/archive-2009-12/0529.shtml

Although it may fix the symptom, I'm not sure what the problem is, and haven't yet looked in depth. Julian took a look at it, but reported on IRC he couldn't see anything obvious. Perhaps more eyes would be useful.
