The patch packages for 4.25 now have an udpated that fixes the problem
with infinite retires. Similar to HASHBALANCE, the retry logic is
handled by chooseHost() within the balance algorithm. In short: it keeps
track of hosts it has already tried instead of just keeping a count of them.
These changes do not affect MaxTargetHosts. It's still available for
configurations where the count of possible next hop hosts exceeds the
reasonable number, limit being typically the time taken, of forwarding
Thanks again for reporting this!
