[Haskell-cafe] [SOLVED] Default Curl call fails with CurlSSLConnectError

Hi all,
Just wanted to document this in case others stumble across it. On
Ubuntu Lucid "curlGetString "https://<some url>" []" can sometimes
fail with  (CurlSSLConnectError,""). Setting  SSL to version 3
manually fixes the problem: "curlGetString "https://<some-url>"
[CurlSSLVersion 3]".

This might also be of interest to the library maintainer, and Don
Stewart whose download-curl package, because it is a wrapper around
the curl package, exhibits the same behavior.

thanks ...
