Just removing the easy handle from the multi handle is what should be enough
to cancel the transfer.

Judging from your description, it sounds as if you're seeing a bug. Are you

Can you reproduce this problem with a smallish program for which you can
provide the code for to us? It makes tracking down these things SO much
