You are not alone!  I get the same type of results.  Occasionally the
*oddest* thing will happen -- it will actually connect ~26 consecutive
times and fetch me the 25 blocks I asked for.  It's extremely erratic.

Yeah, kinda like that. ;-)

I've been told that 2.005 will have configurable time-outs, which should
greatly help in this situation.  (It seems to wait max 30 seconds for a
response from the proxy HTTP server, which seems to be insufficient.  If
I could throw that up to, say, 120 seconds, the world might be a happier
place.)

Nobody has yet offered an ETA for 2.005, though...?
