   Since then at least three people had told me about the following solution:

   add \d's to the dial string which impose a delay before the uucico timeout

A simpler one, which will also respond faster (as I sent in a message
today to you...) is replace the 'CONNECT' statement (or anyother as
applicable) with  'CONNECT-/c-CONNECT' .  With this approach, you 
won't have any arbitrary amount of fixed delay, if the CONNECT happens
fast you'll catch it, but you'll double you total timeout period on
the slow ones.

Take care,
