Thanks very much for looking into it.

50 seconds to make a local connection?  Bah, that's ridiculous!  I'm
beginning to wonder if the kernels running on these build slaves have
buggy schedulers resulting in starvation, or perhaps we're overloading
them too much.

If it sometimes takes 50 seconds to make a local connection, then I
suspect it could occasionally take much longer than a minute.

For now, I've asked Hydra to try building it again, as is.

Maybe in 'core-updates' we should consider increasing the timeout to
something on the order of 5 or 10 minutes.

What do you think?
