Description:
------------
The following code used to work until i upgraded to 4.3.6

Reproduce code:
---------------
// Get RSS feed
$c = curl_init('http://www.vegguide.org/rss/feed.rss?all=1&omit_hours=1');
curl_setopt($c, CURLOPT_ENCODING, 'gzip');
curl_setopt($c, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
curl_setopt($c, CURLOPT_COOKIEFILE, $cookie_jar);
// *** This next line is the problem! ***
$data = curl_exec($c);
curl_close($c);


Expected result:
----------------
$data should be text. xml_parse($xml, $data) should be able to handle it.

Actual result:
--------------
$data is compressed gzip binaray data. I can't use it in this format.

Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself.  For a
list of more appropriate places to ask for help using PHP, please
visit http://www.php.net/support.php as this bug system is not the
appropriate forum for asking support questions. 

Thank you for your interest in PHP.

This is likely to be a bug in the cURL library. The PHP 
interface to the library had no changes that would cause 
this bug.

I'm not aware of any such libcurl bugs, but the URL in this report doesn't work and I cannot repeat this problem.
