I've been on vacation so I am answering this a little late but if you 
are using the XML-RPC library you need to reset the httpHeaders after 
any call to revXMLRPC_Execute since it sets the headers but never 
empties them.  I have filed a bug report on it which you can see here:

Getting the timeout error is consistent with the behavior I saw when 
working with XML-RPC.
