Do your two bogus servers cause stuttering under 1.3.7?  There's a big
difference in the errors you can get from trying to make a connection,
no route to host, connection refused, just really slow, blah blah.

You're looking for test cases where the connect time would be REALLY
slow. or at least he time to determine there was nothing to connect to.
most running machines will just refuse connections immediately, so many
the bogus servers are a good test. :)
