small correction: I observe that bind uses 4 "transactions", with every
transaction having 2 retransmissions with a timeout of 15 seconds. Thus,
during 4x45s=180s bind "blocks" and does not process the notification.

Unfortunately I fail to find the options where I can configure the
number of retransmissions, timeouts and number of transactions - please
give me some hints.
