[Mongrel] Server timeouts

Hi guys,

Does anyone know if mongrel has a built-in timeout for requests that  
take too long?  If so, how do you increase it?

I've found that some server requests are timing out.  Complicated  
requests are already being farmed out to asynchronous processes.  But  
some of the more basic requests are timing out when we have our peak  
server load in the mornings (the bottleneck is the database server).

There are a couple possible locations for the timeout I'm seeing:

1. Mongrel
2. Lighttpd
3. Client browser / application

On my local development server, it does not timeout, leading me to  
believe it's not #3.

Any feedback is appreciated.
