In this case, would the initial connection reset error be seen by the cURL
client, or would it be masked unless the second request fails too?

I was also taking a look at Curl_proxyCONNECT and winced a little.. as it is
blocking!

We use cURL in a GUI app so it's important that it blocks as little as
possible.
