Please try the attached patch. The problem is as you guessed before, than
while calling only curl_multi_socket() on sockets that have action, only those
sockets and those that have a time-out triggered will be dealt with and when
you add a new socket it never got a chance to get socket "action" and it got
no time-out to expire either.

This makes sure there's a time-out expired immediately after
curl_multi_add_handle() and for each time curl_multi_socket/perform() return

Anyway, with this applied your test snippet seems to run fine on my test box.
I'd be happy to get a confirmation from you before I commit.
