[Zope] timeout on external methods?

I only got one reply to this message, from someone who said they weren't
aware of any such timeout. Surely someone knows something about this.
Here is some more information: As I said before, Zope is calling a Perl
script which takes >5 minutes to process. Exactly five minutes after I
submit the request in my browser, the following happens:
IE 6.0: IE apparently automatically tries to resubmit the request, and a
second copy of the perl script is launched. After 10 minutes, IE comes back
with an error "This page cannot be displayed"
Netscape: At five minutes, Netscape displays "The document contains no
Opera 6.0.3: At five minutes, Opera displays "Connection closed by remote
Is this 5 minute timeout configurable? Where does it come from?
