A pull lasts a few seconds (that is if it has anything to pull, else
it just return immediately). The pull is done between 2 computers on
the same LAN and the repositories are rather small. I have bigger
repositories, but I do not see the message with them. The repos that
exhibit this are rather small (around 200-300 patches) and they are
never slow when pulled from on the command line. I'd say that this is
definitely not the reason (the 30 minute timeout, I mean).
