I've never seen it before, but that's pretty much what would be
expected if openhost() fails.  Not much that can be done about it
either, except by not using a crappy betwork.

Not in that failure case, no. If I have it right, that exception is being
thrown straight out of the socket open.

Transaction failures after the initial open are a different matter.  -D 4
should be quite revealing.
