libcurl will keep the connection up as long as possible. Only if the server
(or the app) closes the connection should it have to login again. Any simple
ftp example program will show this. Try changing ftpget.c to call
curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL...) and curl_easy_perform again after the
first one and you'll see. If you're having specific problems with this,
please show us some log output and your code.
