Do you have a network traffic dump from one of those clients?  A
misconfiguration causing a timeout would be the first thing I checked
(e.g., bad addresses in the CellServDB), but seeing the actual network
traffic would show you if the client's were trying to talk to
non-existent systems or perhaps doing something you didn't expect.
