This kind of change worries me.

Adding this somewhat arbitrary "wait 1/4 second, retry 4 times" introduces a very mysterious behavior to consider and maintain going forward.

Re-establishing the network process connection should succeed the first time.
If it doesn't, that's the bug we should fix.

You mention the problem "might be transient"? Have you shown this patch to actually produce results in practice?

If so, I think we should be much more interested in why it fails the first time.

You are the assignee for the bug.
