Thanks a lot for your work and for posting your results here. I plan to
proceed within this area and work on:

A) add the ability to remove only a single specific timeout

B) make sure the expire call from the threaded resolver is done thread-safe

C) Write up a test app and server-side similar to what it sounds like you've
    done and then experiment with the timeouts to make sure that they
    truly trigger as planned when using the multi and multi_socket interfaces.
