Ok, found out that my testtar.tar file was corrupted (Python was
imported to local CVS, and .tar was not declared to be binary file ->
checkout to W2K got it all mangled).

On the test_timeout, it is always the testRecvTimeout that fails, but
that is likely an artifact of me running it in vmWare linux hosting
