We've talked on IRC about this. I can't understand nor repeat this problem.

I've made a local test with one URL downloading 800MB from a local HTTP
server while the other connect to an 'nc' that does nothing.

I've rerun the test multiple times now. It runs fine every time and there are
no timeouts.

I think we need more help from you to repeat this.
