A shot in the dark since no one else more qualified is responding: 
sounds like it's an ado connection timeout rather than script execution 
timeout.  A quick search yields an MSDN article on the ConnectionTimeout 
property[0] as well as one on CommandTimeout[1].  Also found a similar 
thread on wrox[2].  It's been quite a while since I last played with 
ASP, so please pardon me if this reply is off-base!  :)
