The last one available for MinGW: 7.13.0

I did a quite different test. I downloaded the pre-compiled libcurl binary
for MSVC, which is the last version (7.13.1). Then I simply replaced the
libcurl.dll with this new version and it works perfectly! 

So, it was a problem of the MinGW build of the dll, maybe because it is an
old version. 

The gpgkeys_curl.exe so obtained has been compiled with the *.h files of
mingw-libcurl 7.13.0 and linked against the .a library of mingw-libcurl
7.13.0, but uses MSVC version 7.13.1 of "libcurl.dll" and works perfectly. 

I will update as soon as possible my page about this problem.

Is this of libcurl 7.13.0 a known problem? Or maybe is just a problem of that 
particular build? If you think it is important, I can try to rebuild with 
MinGW both libcurl 7.13.0 and libcurl 7.13.1 to debug them...
