This is odd.  Directory server touches are ALWAYS in a separate thread,
and have no interaction with the rest of the stream, except that they
need the info.. (I just realized what the bug is).

The directory server should be limiting the connect times to 15 seconds.
Do you find that this always happens for 15 seconds?

Try 1.3.8 as well, maybe the updated connect code didn't go in until
