It does sound a bit similar, but the only effect of setting
suppress_curl_debug:0  appears to have been to lengthen the timeout period:

(12.430000) desktop/browser.c:2105 browser_window_navigate: Loading ''
(12.430000) content/fetchers/curl.c:324 fetch_curl_setup: fetch 0x749465b0, url ''
(20.060000) content/content.c:382 content_destroy: content 0x748be850
(44.200000) content/fetchers/curl.c:867 fetch_curl_process_headers: HTTP status code 200
(44.220000) content/fetchers/curl.c:1040 fetch_curl_done: done
(44.220000) content/fetchers/curl.c:799 fetch_curl_stop: fetch 0x749465b0, url ''
(44.230000) content/content.c:76 content__init: url -> 0x747c9b40

The first 8 seconds are me dropping my pre-prepared message into the reply
form; the next 24 seconds are the browser waiting for curl to fetch; after
that, it's busy rendering the error page.   :-(
