Yes, (at least) half the time you'll be trying to contact the 
incomplete machine first and have to wait for a time-out before 
continuing to the working machine.  (Note that the order of the entries 
in the CellServDB doesn't matter.)  Change your CellServDB or get the 
other machine operational, and the delays will go away.
