Are you both using the same version of curl? What commit are you
building from? The code you had posted was different from the code you
said you had the problem which was not posted. You are now saying the
code you posted in your original message works fine on your system but
not on your customer's?

If you have some freedom there maybe you can try using a different proxy
to see what happens. Changing which timeouts?
