I have exactly the same problem but I do it anwyat - there is not much
we can do about it.  The default timeout for such lookups are 2 seconds.
You can lower this to one second using

  connect-quick-timeout 1

in dirmngr.conf.  A bit more annoying keyserver DNS entries with service
records, which will all be tried in turn until one is found.  That can
multiply the timeout.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
