I think, yes. I get about five-six internal cycles, each with a single
FTP / few HTTP requests and then this thing happens.

I'm not sure exactly, as I don't know where to look for that number -
if you give a hint I could verify it. At least I have _two_ CURL
instances - one is used as FTP connection to a fixed host, another as
HTTP connection to another host + I have HTTP proxy, and no FTP proxy
- so there should be at least two host names, probably more - due to
redirects from HTTP replies or whatever. I don't know if the cache is
shared among different CURL instances, sorry, that's why I give these
probably irrelevant details.

I wish I had some time to minimize the environment, but.. sorry..

Anyway I'd like to do whatever I can.. Just ask.
