So after a successful bindresvport(), the connect() is failing with errno
EADDRINUSE or EADDRNOTAVAIL and you are hitting the goto?  tryport is
being decremented just before the goto so the loop should exit after a
maximum of 512 times (though I'm not sure how it would loop at all with

If you aren't seeing the decrement, it is probably just compiler
optimization.  Rebuilding with -O0 might help there.  You can also
change the initial value of tryport to something like 515 to see if the
loop exits after 3 times so it is quicker to watch.

Assuming bindresvport() and connect() succeed on their first try, it is
expected that tryport is never used.  It is only used on OSes that don't
have bindresvport().
