No, that function is called after all name resolves (when the threaded
resolver is used), successful or not.

Sorry, but Windows is really not my backyard. I don't know why you see this or
how to fix it.

I can only suggest that you once again check that you don't mix memory
subsystems and then fire up your debugger with a debug-version of libcurl.

This program is just _so_ simple and there are *many* Windows users using
libcurl fine already. This makes me suspect an error in your end rather than
in the libcurl code.
