Okay, I tested with 20 second timeout and 5 retries, using fence_drac5 
at the command line.  Ran 'date' on both sides to see how long it took.  
Just under a minute.  It's too late now to mess around any more for 
tonight.  I do need to verify that that works okay for vsphere.  I will 
post back my results.  Thanks!
