Irregularly, multi-curl functions will give a seg fault. Appears to be due to reuse of handles.

Reproduce code:
$mh = curl_multi_init();

// setup connections here

// exec curl connections here, get data out

// then remove the connections using this:


When I establish a second round of connections using the same variable name, $this->connections[$i] - there can be a segmentation fault.

It crashes on the curl_setopt line of this:

$this->connections[$i] = curl_init($url['URL']);
curl_setopt($this->connections[$i], CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER,1);

Expected result:
Shouldn't crash!
Appears that it can be worked around by adding an additional unset($this->connections);  directly after  curl_multi_close($mh);

Actual result:
Segmentation fault ( - erratically reproducible with my very complicated code)..
