I'm not sure that this is a timeout rather than a DNS issue, as
Peter noted, so I'll think about this alteration. 

What will improve this module though is the new one which adds
IPNs and recurring/subscription billing. This means that Paypal
events separated in time from the original transaction can be
tied back to it in the Interchange database. And that subscriptions
can be logged and integrated into the system properly. 

I hope to get some time to finish this to the testing point this
or next week. Any volunteers for testing are welcome.

I also hope finish the GoogleCheckout module this week, and
then I suppose I had better make time for the updated Protx
module ...
