 I've had a similar problem. I have a list of around 90 servers, and if
one of them times out (or in this case not time out and fail to connect),
the whole process can come to a stand-still. The only solution I've found
is to remove it from my start.url file. I'm running 3.1.5 on PPCLinux

 Some sort of timeout adjustment would seem to be needed. Anyone else
exprience this?
