I did some looking at the source and noticed that the issue is with a
delaykey struct. I have modified the code that ignored the retry
attempt. I could not find a use for the retry portion of the struct
other than to make this not work but I didn't bother removing it since
I wasn't sure. I have removed this from my local build. Thanks for
your help. Heres the diff of what fixed it if your interested.

<               /* don't retry auto boot */
<               if (! delaykey[i].retry)
<                   retry_time = -1;
< #  endif
