the Curl probe was indeed taking '0' for 'true', with both the 'ssl2'
and the 'insecure_ssl' option. This will be fixed in the next release.

Anyway, curl seems to use SSL version 3 by default, so I think you
should be fine if don't specify either 'ssl2' or '-3'. Or maybe it's a
curl version-specific thing...

Thanks for reporting this,
