A bug in curl 7.29.0 can lead to a segfault when closing an unused multi handle. This has been fixed upstream already:

Repackaging with a patch could be nice, since a few applications can now crash w/ the new curl. I believe  FS#33779  is an example of this; using xmlrpc-c often leads to a crash as well, etc.
This task depends upon

Yeah I had my eye on this patch. Wasn't sure how easy it was to reproduce in the wild.

Thanks for the quick fix, Enlightenment was having a number of problems with this, too.
