Thanks for your bug report.
Fixed in the development branch.
The original patch fixed the symptom, that's true.
But the real problem was more big. Basically, the loop logic was wrong.
It is now fixed in a different way.

Alan Curry figured out the problem -- the loop in make_connect incorrectly breaks on error instead of breaking on success (and passing up the connection info)

patch attached
