XCB needs to handle connection errors better; see libxtrans/Xtranssock.c for
how it's been handled in Xlib. Patches welcome. :-)

For TCP sockets there's this comment, with a similar but different set of
issues for Unix sockets:

If the error was ECONNREFUSED, the server may be overloaded
and we should try again.

If the error was EWOULDBLOCK or EINPROGRESS then the socket
was non-blocking and we should poll using select

If the error was EINTR, the connect was interrupted and we
should try again.
