different Microsoft documentation gives different values for the period
that a browser should wait after winning an election before sending out a
new ElectionRequest browser request.
One source, browdiff.txt, lists:
DMB/LMB waits for 100mS
Backup waits for between 200 and 600mS, chosen randomly
Others wait for between 800 and 3,000 mS, chosen randomly.
