Nothing.  I just fixed this bug.  The problem was that the package I
used was WWW::Curl::easy wich was in WWW::Curl 2.0.  In WWW::Curl 3.02
the package is called WWW:Curl::Easy.  This was an extremely annoying
problem since I did not want to require 3.02 since it is not available
in Debian.

Let me know if it does not work now (checked it in 10 minutes ago or
