No, it wasn't. Missing header wouldn't yield timeout. But just for the sake 
of it, I tested it with the above line and it didn't help.

Like I said yesterday, I don't really have time to fully investigate this 
right now, but I'll try to narrow down / fix the problem over the weekend.

Best regards,
