Attached find a patchset that implements this. It connects
to 445, then to 139. It keeps the 445 connection attempt
open until the 139 nb session setup is replied to. A
negative nb session response is treated equivalently to a
tcp connection timeout or so.

At least that's the idea, this patch is completely untested
so far.
