This segfault appears to be a simple programming error. 
which comes out only when  we need to retry address list (which happens
when no node is available at the time of first scan)

There is code which prevents random hostorder to connect same node
twice a row

        while (current != NULL)
            if (current == conn->addr_cur)
                current = current->ai_next;
            if ((rand()&0xffff) < 0x10000 / count)
                choice = current;
            current = current->ai_next;

There should be continue;  after first current = current->ai_next;

But this turns out to be more complicated matter, so I'm not ready to
provide next version of patch yet.
