I know this is a VERY stale thread, but would this Exception actually 
catch a Timeout?  I ask because I need to do this so our app doesn't get 
hung up if the webservice we are calling tips over.  Perhaps (likely) 
there is something obvious I have just not seen, but it seems like this 
should be fairly trivial to do.
