I thought it'd work with --enable-nsl-fork (from INSTALLATION:
"Disabled by default, this allows interruption of NSL requests,
so that `z' will stop the `look-up' phase of a connection.")
but I also noticed it never did for me on Windows. Or is the
option just for "Looking up..." ?

But you wrote "the reply never comes". Isn't there a timeout ?
I'm not sure I ever had to kill it.

Thomas, "looked good for 5.4 release for upload to
(but see above)" wasn't enough...
