I think it's a timing issue again. I just tried an account creation
and got a 504 as well. However, in the logs I can see that the
request was actually processed fine and shows a 200.

Perhaps the timeout settings on front were changed, causing these

For some reason the account creation takes longer than 60 seconds
(measured around 70 seconds), which appears to be the front timeout.

Of course, it doesn't help that moin stores the user accounts
in individual files and we have more than 142k of those in a single
