Let me add another point
(f) the primitive can fail if the smalltalk code does not match the
plugin code. Like using newer smalltalk code with older plugin.
In this case
<primitive: 'primCurlVersion' module: 'CurlPlugin'>
where the primCurlVersion appears to be added in march of 2007 so I
wonder when the curl windows dll was compiled and what code base it
If the Smalltalk code contains SUnits (in this case CurlTests) you
should run them and see what happens.
