That won't help us much though, as it is almost six years old and we fixed it
there and then as you can see in the mail thread...

Can you spot any pattern in which hosts you experience this problem with? We
need to scale down your recipe so that we can instrument what's going on.

To me, the main concern is that the timeout doesn't seem to trigger. Are you
using curl_multi_perform() or curl_multi_socket_action(), you seem to imply
*perform(), right?

Each process is separated from the others so they're really "just" 100 for
each instance and that's not a very large number for a modern machine.
