[php-maint] Bug#717267: Truncates http passwords on the first semicolon

Package: php5-curl
Version: 5.5.0+dfsg-15
Severity: normal


when assembling the Authorization: Basic header, php's curl extension only
includes the password up to (but not including) the first semicolon

Verified using a sniffer.

The password is correctly passed in using a construct like

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_USERPWD, $login . ":" . $pass);

Best regards,
