No, you're right. With CURLOPT_TIMEOUT set there should always be a timeout

I think we've noticed and discussed this before that there is some glitch in
the multi interface in this department. But I've not really chased after the
problem as I've considered it not too important since in the multi interface
case you (the app) can always have your own timer and just remove the handle
whenever you feel like it.

I'd love to get some additional eyes and help on this issue.
