Port number incorrectly shared between requests when using HTTP Proxy with connection re-use #1887

What actually happened

Full anonymised log: We use an internal proxy server, we did not share the proxy server that we used nor the destination endpoints of the example. Let me know if this is a hurdle:
I've verified that the latest version of curl master is also affected (7.56.0-DEV).
I've proposed a workaround here, though this is not ideal we would like to re-use proxy connections while specifying a different port.
Disabling connection re-use is a workaround for this issue.
