Not sure if you (Niels) looked at the code, but when I look at it, that
NameError is something that is not uncommon to happen as the whole
exception handling is written exactly to handle that:

The "hung" happens in the exception handling (which in itself is also in
a try/except block). To me (but I am not very good in Python and not at
all familiar with Orca) it still looks like synaptic is doing something
that in the end triggers a time out. I hope somebody with more Python
and/or Orca knowledge can shine a light on this.
