RE: Why does nmap send multiple probes to the same port?

Thanks to Richard for really answering my question.  I 
have tried -sS and sniffed the packets but left those 
details out in my original post.  Nmap is sending multiple 
probes and the --max_retries was added in 3.96BETA1 so 
people like me could control it.  I am running 3.81 which 
was released before this was added so the explanation 
about why it did this was not in my man page.

Since I am running debian, I would prefer not to install 
the latest version, but I think I might.  Thanks to 
everyone for your input.
