G'day folks,

I have a site just about ready to go on-line.  All my local testing has
worked like a dream - but the cURL support on the hosting provider is
partially broken.

Actually using curl_init()...curl_exec() etc. on my box to contact remote
URIs (both over HTTP and HTTPS) has worked from day 1 (with versions 4.0.4p1,
4.0.5 and 4.0.6).

On the hosting provider, HTTPS connections don't work.  But, I'm told the
command-line version of curl does work.

So, my question is - what gives?  Are there known (intermittent) problems
with support for cURL or have the provider's staff "done something" during
the build of curl and/or PHP?

Any help would be much appreciated as I really don't like the idea of palming
off access to secure sites to yet another external program.  Thanks for any
