Bug#418548: apt-spy: segfaults

Package: apt-spy
Version: 3.1-16
Severity: normal

I experience the same problem in debian/etch.  I tried to build the
source on etch with debug information included in the binary, and ran
it it gdb.  did not help much.  I also tried to run the program under
valgrind, but it did not tell me much either.  The stack is just
completely messed up.

Single-stepping throught the code show me that the crash happen in the
benchmark() call, just after the call in line 67 for
"get_file(current, curl, file, HTTP, &total_bytes);", when the call to
"curl_easy_cleanup(curl);" is executed.  Before the call to
curl_easy_cleanup() the stack is OK.  Inside it the crash happen, and
after the crash the stack is messed up.

That was as far as I got with my debugging this time.  I hope it
