As far as I've found out Revision 14205 adds a check that pings the 
database server before connecting to it. If it dont get a response on 
the ping check, it jumps directly to database prompting.

IMO the idea is good, but there should be some way to bypass this check 
as some servers\routers ignores pings. If you have a database on a 
server that ignores the ping request you wont be able to connect at all 
with this patch. (Unless I'm missing something vital)
