The debbugs server seems back to normal speeds now, I'm getting ~200
hits with it just like other servers.  The patch below brings it down to
15~20.  nanosleep isn't portable though right?  Not sure what to put
instead, it seems existing wait functions in Emacs are all tied up with
threads and processes, so I don't know if it's safe to call them here.
