Right, but only if the easy interface is used and not if multi. I consider
that a minor flaw in the top-level code that deals with connects. I guess we
need to do something similar for the SSH case, don't you agree?

My blue sky dream is of course to go 100% multi interface internally an only
provide the easy interface as an API "externally".
