javac server: No port file values materialized. on AIX

Maybe the timeout of five seconds is too small?

Our AIX boxes are not the fastest and we also have a lot of stuff on NFS shares.

I recently saw this one:

[CLIENT] Exception caught: No port file values
materialized. Giving up after 6676 ms

Normally the timeout should be just about a little more than 5 seconds
but here the exception reports more than 6 seconds which might be a
hint that the machine was severely overloaded.
