iChain is broken when it comes to the SSL part. It simply doesn't answer
to TLS requests and therefore every browser based on newer versions of
NSS (Firefox 2.0, SeaMonkey 1.1) will suffer from timeouts before the
iChain page comes up at all.
Please note that I've opened a bug once to the iChain team but they
didn't understand the problem :-(

The Mozilla guys fixed that issue on their side by reducing the timeout
for this special case. Before this change the browser would have waited
for two minutes before the page loaded. This is now around 15 seconds
but it's still a bug in the SSL implementation of iChain.

I don't have Novell's BugID anymore because I can't access it nowadays.
