Our media is stored on a disk that is spun down when unused. When starting the playback with the disk being idle it has to spin up causing a considerable delay making the connection to the mpd server timeout. The default timeout is five seconds which sounds reasonable, so instead of raising it I'd suggest to make it configurable.
The attached patch implements this change. Note that the modification to ario-xmms.c is untested since that backend fails to compile on my system.
