Thoughs on issue #1563: TTimo's stalling checkout.

After a quick discussion on #svn I think I may have a clue as to what is
causing issue #1563. It may be because TTimo does large checkouts over SSL
that the connection gets re-negotiated.

If ephemeral keying is being used by SSL then it may need to draw more
entropy as the connection proceeds. Fitz pointed out that OpenSSL uses
/dev/random by default, not /dev/urandom.

Hmmm.... Sound familiar? It could be the same thing as our repository
creation hangs?

Thoughs?

L8r,
Mark G.
