Are you getting "data was late" messages on the transcript?
The HTTPSocket will try 3 times to wait for up to 5 seconds for a
response, then will return a default that's easy to test for.
However, I'd prefer it to raise an Exception and let the application
determine a retry policy (and a timeout, for that matter).
In your case, it would make more sense to not retry immediately, but
to take the potential retries and save them for later.
