PowerWyrm is on a distinguished road
I've found a fix for the endless wait while querying a non-responding metaserver. Now the code calls SocketReadable() ten times, once per second, and defaults to selecting a server manually if the ten second timeout expires. Tested vs MAngband's metaserver (the timeout triggers) and TomeNET's metaserver (data is properly read from the meta).
