Well, you have to do so if it is really taking so long to do the AMQP 
handshake that a timeout occurs. That's really quite rare though (which 
is why that timeout is not currently configurable).

More likely is that something is getting in the way of the handshake 
completing successfully. Are you seeing this every time you attempt to 
connect, or only sometimes?
