good! did you see it actually CONNECT ok before closing? or was the
close a "gave up" or "no exit available" close?

depending on how out of date your cached information is, there may be
hundreds and hundreds of IP's to get info for.  while the request to
the geoip service does try to ask about many IPs at a time, it will
still break a huge amount into reasonable chunks, and thus multiple
GOOD responses are needed to successfully connected requests for some
router details to get geo coordinates.
