I checked in a modified version of reset the retry count for respnse code !=401 in the following checkins:
Unfortunately, we wont be able to patch the 2.6.x release. You might want to use patch which is attached or fix it at mercurial end.
Another issue, Issue9639 was fixed to reset the retry on successful response.
I am going to close this issue, there was a minor discussion in the middle if 5 retries in worth it, but it looks like it is (msg107261).
