Re: potential bug in multi_runsingle() in multi.c ?

From: 邓民文 <>
Date: Wed, 18 Jun 2008 15:15:46 +0800

i think the patch may be as below, am i do right ?

in lib/url.c

static bool
ConnectionExists(struct SessionHandle *data,
                 struct connectdata *needle,
                 struct connectdata **usethis)
  long i;
  struct connectdata *check;
  bool canPipeline = IsPipeliningPossible(data);

  for(i=0; i< data->state.connc->num; i++) {
    bool match = FALSE;
    size_t pipeLen = 0;
     * Note that if we use a HTTP proxy, we check connections to that
     * proxy and not to the actual remote server.
    check = data->state.connc->connects[i];
- if(!check)
+ if(!check || check->inuse)
      /* NULL pointer means not filled-in entry */

    pipeLen = check->send_pipe->size + check->recv_pipe->size;
