Follow-up Comment #19, bug #41067 (project octave):

When Octave starts, it uses curl to fetch the Octave Community News page from
octave.org.  I presume that it is failing when the url_transfer class can't
instantiate a curl_transfer object and instead creates a base_url_transfer
object (I think I have the names right).  We are probably missing a check to
ensure that the url_transfer object is OK before attempting to use it.

Even so, it should not crash.  There should be some kind of error or simply a
failure to retrieve anything from the URL instead of crashing.
