I moved this over to dev@apr as suggested, but have not received any 
responses there.

Note that I applied Matt Stevenson's suggested fix from earlier in this 
thread [] and 
the connection timeout then worked on Windows as expected with 8 dead 
ports being checked in between 1 and 2 seconds -- which is what I'd 
expect given a connectiontimeout of 160ms.

It would seem proxy_util.c should not have to do this but rather that 
whatever is needed to get connection timeouts to work on a given 
platform should be done in apr_socket_connect().

This raises another question, though.  Earlier in this thread there were 
claims that Matt Stevenson's patch had adverse performance impacts, e.g. 
on HTTPS.  Can someone explain how this could be?  I ask in part as 
unless/until someone figures out the right fix in APR, I'll have to use 
Matt's patch -- and would like to understand the downsides and mitigate 
them if possible.
