Good catch, but it seems to me that moving the Curl_close(newhandle); call to the fail: label is a better fix, and then we can remove it from the other error checks that goto fail. What do you think?

I wouldn't recommend that, based on the current placement of the fail: label (it's a drop-through for good cases). However, you could add a return rv; right before the fail: label to take care of the drop-through (non-goto cases). Also, notice that we goto on alloc fail, so you'd need to confirm that it's safe to call Curl_close() with a NULL pointer.

Right, and newhandle had a different scope too. I decided to let your change be and merge that. Thanks!
