Yes, I mean no....

I have appended the new prog, it does not solve the problem.
I think it has something to do, that after the
curl_multi_add_handle(multi_handle, ctx);
The fdset is empty, at least maxfd is -1.

Nope. My benchmark is almost done.

No, this would overcomplicate it. And you have context switches.
I hope to get 16000 requests per second, but I may be dreaming.

SuSE 9.0

curl-7.14.0-1 build with gcc 3.3.3

During the select call.
Have you compiled the program, I think it show the problem very clearly
on any www site.

(Although it might still be a bug in how I use libcurl.)
