Hmm, maybe broken reverse dns lookup? I have seen bug reports about long 
delays related to that (although NOT timeouts).

Maybe just check if the IP of the client having the timeout resolves to 
a dns name on the wiki server.

server: $ host  # <- IP of client

Recent moin versions are configurable to not do reverse dns lookups on 
save (if you can't fix your dns). And a even more recent version even 
fixed it for standalone server.
