[pacman-dev] bug: pacman giving up too fast downloading

Well, I have lots of errors while downloading packages with pacman,
and almost never while downloading files from Shiretoko Firefox.

I have tried many mirrors, that's the same for each.

Oh... I use a 56k modem (Intel 536EP Data Fax modem).

But even while downloading in Firefox, it sometimes give me the
feeling it has stopped downloading for about 40 secs... while pacman
seems to give up after about 20 secs.

I did not tried yet to download with wget or curl (does pacman use one
of them?).

Is there a constant I could change in the code, and rebuild it?... I
did not download the code of pacman yet.
