You didn't mention on what OS you're on, but I assume a *nix-like one and I
assume you use the regular resolver (ie you didn't do a c-ares build). Since
you didn't switch off libcurl's use of signals (CURLOPT_NOSIGNAL) I guess your
problem is that signals and threading don't mix very well in unix land.
