           Summary: [Regression] Exception while trying to download new
                    definitions in MoMA
    Classification: Mono
           Product: Mono: Class Libraries
           Version: 2.4.x
          Platform: i586
        OS/Version: SLED 10
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Critical
          Priority: P5 - None
         Component: System
        AssignedTo: mono-bugs at lists.ximian.com

Description of Problem:
When trying to "check for newer version" in MoMA, it just sits there until it
times out and throws the exception:

System.Net.WebException: The request timed out
  at System.Net.HttpWebRequest.EndGetResponse (IAsyncResult asyncResult)
  at System.Net.HttpWebRequest.GetResponse () [0x00000]
  at System.Web.Services.Protocols.WebClientProtocol.GetWebResponse
(System.Net.WebRequest request) [0x00000]

This was found in Mono 2.4p3.

This didn't happen in Mono 2.4p2, and is therefore a regression.

In fact, I took the VM I used for testing Mono 2.4p2 and ran MoMA and was able
to "check for a newer version". I then upgraded mono on that VM to Mono 2.4p3,
and tried the check again, and it failed.

This also seems to be affecting MonoCalendar on start because MonoCalendar
checks to see if there it has a newer version and instead now just locks up
until the check times out.

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Install Mono 2.4p3 from here:
2. Install MoMA from Mono:Community here:
3. Run MoMA inside a terminal
4. On step 2 of 5, click the "Check for newer version"
5. Wait for MoMA to time out
6. Notice the exception as above

Actual Results:

Expected Results:
should download the newest moma definitions

How often does this happen? 
every time, and on multiple VMs
