I'm not sure that apache is giving up (on the link checker) before the link
checker gives up (on the checked link). As I just checked, apache's timeout
value is 120 on our servers, which is way above the link checker's. I'm
suspecting that the actor abandoning the game is actually the browser, here,
which I think typically has a 30 seconds timeout.

therefore, I agree we could lower the link checker's default timeout value to,
say, 20 or 30 seconds.
