Often times proxy servers add their own headers (like HTTP/1.0 200 Connection established) to responses on their way back to the client. The size of these headers was not taken into account when calculating CURLINFO_HEADER_SIZE before the change from this pull request.

The problem can be reproduced quite easily using the test program from In our case the proxy server at proxy:8080 was the default Squid that ships with Debian stable.

@mj mj Proxy servers tend to add their own headers at the beginning of
responses. The size of these headers was not taken into account by
CURLINFO_HEADER_SIZE before this change.
