I installed on my machine a few weeks ago and had the same problem
then. I found the following "solution" to work quite well. Still, 
apt-get times out, but really not that often.

I added this option to apt.conf which fixed it for me :

// Needed for using apt through proxies
Acquire::http::Pipeline-Depth "0";
