This has been a recurring problem I had also been having when
debugging MinGW compiled programs that use winsock and is not specific
to libcurl. Try running your program without the debugger, it should
run normally.

Are you running a firewall on the machine you are testing this on? If
so, then see here for a possible explanation:

And I think the way libcurl handles timeouts using signals causes this
behavior under win32. See here:

tremble before me!
