1.1.14+retry segmentation faults seem fixed

I heard from Christian Krackowizer that he was able to apply the retry
patch to 1.1.14 and run it without crashing for the past 40 hours, so just
to make sure, I downloaded a new copy of 1.1.14 and applied the patch to

It looks like the problem was caused, somehow, by the way in which the
timeout value is used in the comm_connect_addr() function. I changed this
after creating the patch in order to get rid of a spurious variable left
over from the setsockopt() approach, thinking that it wouldn't make any
difference. Maybe some kind of type mismatch, or something. *sigh*

The good news is that 1.1.14's retry patch seems to be operational, 3,269
connections here so far over the last half hour.
