just a comment from the outside.

if i read get_connection_to_drop_candidate() correctly, your algorithm
selects the first, in terms of location in 'connection' array, "best"
(lowest state) candidate to drop.

you might think of, when finding an *equally* "best" candidate, flipping
some (weighted, by?) coin, and either taking your current candidate, or
taking the newly discovered "best". as someone's e-mail tag says, "when
in doubt, randomize" :).

(as a *research* experiment, in some other life, i might flip a coin for
*every* element in the array, based maybe on the relative states?)

cheers, Greg
