Thanks for reporting. I gave it a quick go, and the issue seems to
also be present in the current 'master'.

The problem is a NULL-pointer dereferencing introduced in 8809703
("http: factor out http error code handling"), where the code assume
that slot->results still points to http_request::results. This
assumption seems to be wrong.

This seems to step around the issue, but I don't know if
http_request::results should be set to NULL in the first place. Jeff?
