This sounds like a good idea to me - I haven't found time to review your
patch so far, though.  Sorry.

I know that I have used retry logic in totally different circumstances
in code where I increased the delay with each retry attempt.  I.e. I
waited a very short time before the first retry and doubled it each
time.  Would something like this make sense here as well?

It would be good if you could open an enhancement request in bugzilla
and attach your patch.  It is less prone to get lost there compared to
the developers' INBOX.
