Hi Padraig,

as there are different line counts expected in the 'out' file,
I needed to change retry_delay_().  it can now be called with
more than three arguments (test_func, init_delay, max_n_tries)
in which case it passes such values on to test_func.

Unless there are objection, I'd push the attached tomorrow.

Have a nice day,
