forced timeout in riak_client:get/3

I've been testing a 2 or 3 riak nodes cluster with the following setup:
debug-fresh riak0_config riak0 at
debug-join  riak1_config riak0 at
debug-join  riak2_config riak0 at

All configs use the gb_trees backend.

They all have unique doorbell ports and are all unique riak-0.6 trees
to be sure that there's no data dir conflicts.
I've chosen not to use hg tip as there seem to be no changes
to riak_get_fsm.erl which would possibly be a fix to the
issue I run into.

The test:
(1) knowing that all nodes are up I put/2 all test data with W=N
(2) run tests that get/3 with R=1 where each get/3 responds within ~60ms
(3) stop riak0
(4) re-run tests. it works correctly with get/3 R=1 but I run into the default
     timeout of 15 seconds.
(5) debug-restart riak0_config riak0 at
(6) rerun tests with riak0 back online and it again responds within ~60ms

The decision which of the 3 or 2 nodes to connect to is done with
a client-side availability check. From that list of online nodes
I do riak_client:connect/1 to a random online node.

Any idea what's going wrong?
