[php-maint] Bug#376585: php5-curl: does nothing when fetching from https:// url

Package: php5-curl
Version: 5.1.4-0.1
Severity: important

PHP returns a blank page if curl is used to fetch an https URL. By 'blank page', I mean it doesn't even return the 
output of previous print() statements (or at least if it does, Apache (and thus the user) never sees it). Change the 
URL to 'http' and it works normally. Seems to happen for ANY https URL.
