One of the core developers discovered that there are some ssl proxy
servers on a particular ISP that take longer to respond than the
(previously hard-coded) 1 second default. If you have this problem with
some of your customers then setting this value to something higher than
5 or so will allow those proxy servers to work. On the downside it can
also make IC more vulnerable to a certain type of DOS attack so you
shouldn't adjust this unless you really need to.
