purely my lack of understanding the code. i see a bit more now, and can
say that the function Curl_http_auth_act() is getting called, and does
change the conn struct to indicate that the connect is over and the newurl
should be used. but, the code continues and runs the if((k->keepon &
KEEP_WRITE) && (select_res & CSELECT_OUT)){}, which attempts a write on
the closed connect.

perhaps at the time that the auth code says i should use a different url,
we could rewind and break out of this loop, or should we return to the
caller? i do not see exactly where the re-transmit with auth happens

and yes, this does look like a mine field.
