Me too - I've been debugging it for an hour or so this morning and couldn't
reproduce anything ;-)

Looking at the code the only problem I can see is in singleipconnect() when
the default clause gets called in "switch (error)".

In other instances where this function returns a failure it closes the
socket. In most instances where CURLE_OK gets returned "*sockp" is set to
"sockfd". In this instance neither happens :(
