Regarding how the deletion of timers could cause the issue.
We’re using CURLMOPT_TIMERFUNCTION to get informed when to perform a curl_multi_info_read.
Is it possible that this is the reason why we don’t get informed about the failing attempt to send the message?
If so, what other possibilities do you see how to get notified?
