I know that. As I said, I was the one who reported it, and it took the
firefox team nearly a week to find that it was a dependency, and that the
crashreporter had the *same* dependency, and so couldn't give a stack
trace because *it* crashed.

And yes, I do have both the 386 and the x86_64 versions of curl installed.
