After this change:
current connection retry count influences which IP address will be picked by weechat for server. That has negative consequences for me - I have IPv6 tunnel and want to connect to IRC networks through it. The problem is that sometimes it fails and weechat reconnects to IPv4 address. After that /reconnect and /disconnect + /connect commands will only use IPv4 addresses, totally ignoring IPv6 connection (well, maybe until connecting to IPv4 address fails). I found only 2 ways to reenable IPv6 - restarting weechat and changing/adding addresses to server configuration (smth like /set irc.server.freenode.addresses chat.freenode.net,ipv6.chat.freenode.net) + using /reconnect -switch. Both of them aren't convenient workarounds. I think /disconnect command should reset retry counts.
