As I said in an earlier comment to this PR, I support this change,
but I don't think it is related to the present issue.

It did not. Console log:
Some observations based on the timestamped log:
The "ifconfig -w 15 -W 5" command runs in five seconds. The ftp
command then takes some 74 seconds to time out.
Then, a diagnostic "ifconfig -a" is run, and it shows a TENTATIVE flag
even though 83 seconds (!) have now elapsed since the "ifconfig
-w 15 -W 5" started.
Ten seconds later, a second diagnostic "ifconfig -a" is run, and then,
the TENTATIVE flag is gone.
When reading the timestamped log, note that the console output is not
being read during the 10-second sleep between the two "ifconfig -a"
commands, so the output from the first "ifconfig -a" only appears in
the log after the second "ifconfig -a" has been sent, and its timestamp
is not meaningful. The timestamps on the "send(..., 'ifconfig -a\n')"
lines are correct.
