AIM taking literally 15+ minutes to connect

I've seen similar 10/15 minute timeouts in other 3rd party applications
caused by OCSP timeouts.
Does Pidgin take OCSP into accounts when doing it's handshakes?
Do your Pidgin connect behind a proxy? In our case, we needed to use
Wireshark to determine the underlying issue. Using an alternative proxy
was the interim work-around.
