Kalle - for the timeout problems, see https://bugs.maemo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1636

Jake mistakenly tried to close it as INVALID. Unless you intend to revert back to the 3.2007 default you may want to think about adding a GUI checkbox that enables/disables the shorter timeout, or perhaps add a text/list box that allows the user to select their own timeout.

It would be nice to see some input from yourself on this bug - so far we're just discussing it amongst ourselves until it's either fixed, closed or marked as invalid. Not a good use of Bugzilla.
