Is this reproduceable *every* time?

Have you *ever* seen it work?

What's the server (e.g. W2K3 Server, Acme 5000, ...)?

First, try setting the timeouts to something huge like 1 hour just to
verify that changing the time makes any difference at all. If it does
make a difference then your server's just overloaded and it's probably
not a big deal to leave the timeouts with big values. If it doesn't
make a difference then either the server's in a bad way or the client's
in a bad way. But let's find out if using huge timeouts actually makes
a difference.
