In the 10 minutes or so I spent poking through the code (deadlines at
work don't allow to me poke longer, since I have to move on to other

that doesn't get run for multi-handle connections.

Really? I looked through the code just now, searching for something like that but I didn't spot it...

I still haven't had time to dig further and I probably won't until after we finish moving to our new townhouse, but here's the lines that piqued my interest.

Lines 621-622:  lib/connect.c

/* singleipconnect() connects to the given IP only, and it may return without
   having connected if used from the multi interface. */

Lines 689-697: lib/connect.c  (same function: singleipconnect())

  if((WAITCONN_TIMEOUT == rc) &&
     (data->state.used_interface == Curl_if_multi)) {
    /* Timeout when running the multi interface */
    return sockfd;

  conected = verifyconnect(sockfd, &error);
