I am at 2.5 release... after rebooting the machine libURL started to 
behave better.... guess what there's a strange thing with XML-RPC lib, 
the one that taps into revXML that taps into libURL anyway. For example 
revXMLRPC_CreateRequest is a handler, but if you call it as if it is a 
function by using parenthesis, it will not return an error, it will 
return fine, but it will never work and the errors will be related to 
libURL... heck.... no xmlrpcerr: something, but things like "socket 
timeout" and stuff. I always thought that if you call a handler using a 
function call it would never reach it's destination. strange.... very
