Yes, I did a work-around for this.

Cannot do this for different reasons.

Its ntpclient, but this seems to happen only for a weird DSL router 
setup at a friends place. It pings and resolves the IP of the 
NTP server correctly but the socket never sends to the server and the 
timeout is about 4 secs. Weird error that affects my app as it hangs 
until it gets a response...
