Ah, so we additionally need something like Matt Stevenson's patch (or 
just change connection timeout to be a float or double rather than 
changing its units) to allow connection timeouts of much less than 1 
second (e.g. 0.125 seconds) to address my Windows issue with slow 
connection rejection -- and that's /if/ Windows consistently connects in 
less than that timeframe when it is going to connect.
