RE: Always get connection timeout

From: Price, Robert <>
Date: Fri, 15 Aug 2008 14:09:29 -0700 is used here:
timeout_ms -= Curl_tvdiff(*nowp, data->progress.t_startsingle);

But, my problem is that Curl_tvdiff() is ALWAYS returning the same value
- which doesn't use the timeout value.

Currently, not using a 64-bit architecture (x386) on a 2.40.20 kernel.
I am debugging using gdb, maybe I'll spend some cycles looking to see if
the values in nowp and data->progress.t_startsingle are actually
changing from execution to execution.

This is wrong; it should be:


You didn't say what architecture you're using, but if it's x86_64, this
will cause you grief (potentially the kind you're seeing).

Because that value for CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT is used in

You could see what values are being returned by using gdb or adding some
debug prints in the code to try to narrow the problem.
