Bug description:  Troubles enabling extension php_curl.php

When I enable php_curl.php extension by uncommenting


no php script ever gets executed, instead it just gets stuck. However, this is not the 
case for all extensions,
 e.g. I also use php_interbase.dll without any problem.

This problem is not specific only to php_curl.dll, also
other dlls make trouble, but curl is the one i'm interested in.

I use Win32 binary downloaded from 17.1.2001.
I din't compile myself anything. I use php with apache server, in cgi way.

Here is my php.ini causing troubles:


; About this file ;
; This is the 'optimized', PHP 4-style version of the php.ini-dist file.
; For general information about the php.ini file, please consult the php.ini-dist
; file, included in your PHP distribution.
; This file is different from the php.ini-dist file in the fact that it features
; different values for several directives, in order to improve performance, while
; possibly breaking compatibility with the standard out-of-the-box behavior of
; PHP 3.  Please make sure you read what's different, and modify your scripts
; accordingly, if you decide to use this file instead.
; - allow_call_time_pass_reference = Off
;     It's not possible to decide to force a variable to be passed by reference
;     when calling a function.  The PHP 4 style to do this is by making the
;     function require the relevant argument by reference.
; - register_globals = Off
;     Global variables are no longer registered for input data (POST, GET, cookies,
;     environment and other server variables).  Instead of using $foo, you must use
;     $HTTP_POST_VARS["foo"], $HTTP_GET_VARS["foo"], $HTTP_COOKIE_VARS["foo"], 
;     $HTTP_ENV_VARS["foo"] or $HTTP_SERVER_VARS["foo"], depending on which kind
;     of input source you're expecting 'foo' to come from.
; - register_argc_argv = Off
;     Disables registration of the somewhat redundant $argv and $argc global
;     variables.
; - magic_quotes_gpc = Off
;     Input data is no longer escaped with slashes so that it can be sent into
;     SQL databases without further manipulation.  Instead, you should use the
;     function addslashes() on each input element you wish to send to a database.
; - variables_order = "GPCS"
;     The environment variables are not hashed into the $HTTP_ENV_VARS[].  To access
;     environment variables, you can use getenv() instead.
