Latest commit 2011b83 Jun 24, 2016 @schwabe schwabe committed with cron2 Remove http-proxy-retry and socks-proxy-retry.
These options were probably introduced long before we had multiple
remote/connection entries. For all other connection entries, OpenVPN will
go on with the next connection if it fails. For proxies, if it fails in
some ways it works the same, for other failures it completely stops.

Removing the *-proxy-retry and defaulting to retry makes the behavior more
predictiable. Stopping after one try (regardless of reason) can be achieved
with --max-connect-retry 1

V2: Add reason for removing, remove from manpage, give a hint at
   --max-connet-retry
V3: Collapse the two ifs in options.c to one block
