I think the problem is that the code is simply waiting for the socket to
become writeable (as you saw), while in reality it should wait for it to
become readable after it has sent its CONNECT request.

My (untested) attempt at fixing this follows:

diff -u -r1.168 multi.c
--- lib/multi.c 30 Apr 2008 21:20:09 -0000 1.168
+++ lib/multi.c 6 May 2008 21:33:40 -0000

      return GETSOCK_BLANK;

    sock[0] = conn->sock[FIRSTSOCKET];
+ /* when we've sent a CONNECT to a proxy, we should rather wait for the
+ socket to become readable to be able to get the response headers */
+ if(conn->bits.tunnel_connecting)
    return GETSOCK_WRITESOCK(0);
