Program slow to start in floating mode

In some cases, our program may take a long time to start up. Under some conditions, it may take 1-2 minutes to come up.

When checking the flexlm log file, you may see the following messages..
11:30:45 (artwork) UNSUPPORTED: "ACS5I53" (PORT_AT_HOST_PLUS   )
27005@server  (License server does not support this feature
(-18,327))
11:30:55 (artwork) UNSUPPORTED: "ACS2759" (PORT_AT_HOST_PLUS   )
27005@server  (License server does not support this feature
-18,327))

We found out that this behaviour can happen when the LM_LICENSE_FILE variable is pointing to a few servers. In this case our program has to check for a license in each one of the servers. If one of them is down, that will slow things even further.
