It's not a DNS issue as far as I can tell.

The connection to the host is not of the best quality (at least
connecting from The Netherlands.). We tried IP instead of
hostname as well with the same results. Please check with
your network tools and I am sure you will encounter same issues
as we did. However, connecting from a host located in the US
is less prone to this issue I guess...

Anyhow, applying the retry patch solved all issues with this
host for us. :)
