Failure to reconnect when remote host referenced via (dynamic) dns #110
PuTTYTray reconnects just fine when my host name is found in my Windows hosts file.
However, when I use a remote host name that uses (dynamic) DNS (e.g., mymachine.dyndns.org), it times out with the following error message:
Pressing "OK" (the only option), then causes PuTTYTray to exit.
Shouldn't PuTTYTray realize that the non-existence of a host (presumably non response from a dns-type query) is exactly what one would expect when the Internet connection is down... so that PuTTYTray should continue waiting to reconnect rather than throwing an error message and exiting

Thanks! Seems to work fine now...
As you hinted to in your commit, it might be nice to be able to control the rate at which it tries to reconnect.
