[tahoe-dev] timeouts

I've finally got around to playing with Tahoe and all works well--I get
a few warnings when it starts, see the included tahoe.log, but not sure
if that's because of the version of Python I'm using.

My only initial concern is the apparent lack of timeouts when
creating/uploading things.  Maybe I'm the first person whose client
happens to have found a bad (firewalled?) node but creating/writing
things takes ages.  When I look on the "status" screen I see "Sending
Shares: 9 placed out of 10".  It sits there for ages and doesn't seem
to get anywhere.  If I hit "Create a Directory" a few times it'll
eventually pick a good set of nodes and things will work, but this
doesn't seem "optimal".

Maybe I've done something strange?

I also got somewhat confused by "docs/running.html" somewhat
arbitrarily referring to "nodes", "clients", "grids", "servers",
"clients" and "introducers".  I've had a reasonable hack of this file
and am attaching it as well.
