FWIW, the issue you indicated could be easily reproduced by either
adding a slapo-retcode in front of the remote server with a sleep longer
than the proxy's timeout, or simply by running the remote server under
gdb, stopping at do_bind long enough to see the timeout expire.  I did
the latter, and I could 100% reproduce that issue before patching, while
it disappeared after.
