There's a couple of timeouts.   One if where we cache the
name DC's from failed connection attempts.  Entries in
that expire after 30 seconds.  Look in libsmb/conncache.c.

Other things you are seeing is a retry loop that tries up
to 3 times to connect.  You could set that to a lower value.

I'll try to look at this some more but it will take some
thought.  Would you file a bug for me at  Thanks.

cheers, jerry
