I added a trace to show the counter, and timed it (with connect_timeout
set to 300) on my machine.  It ran 3 minutes 11 seconds.  The log shows
the error that stopped the loop:

tries 1887/3000
tries 1888/3000
tries 1889/3000
TCP: Error 110 in `SOCKET_ERRNO' after call to confirm-ready connect() failed.
        Connection timed out
HTTP: Unable to connect to remote host for `' (errno = 9).

Alert!: Unable to connect to remote host.

HTAccess:  status=-29999
HTAccess: `' has been accessed, No data loaded.
stop_curses: done.

According to errno's list, a 110 is "Connection timed out", as the log
shows.  That's probably settable outside lynx, but I'm not sure where
to look...
