The current version of the client will attempt each network access
five times, with one sec between. 

Making it restart in this circumstance might require that we
block forever whenever we get a network connectivity issue.

It may be possible to inform the user that a network error
has occurred, and allow them to retry. I'll mark it as
an RFE for the next release.
