If you take a close look at the log files, you'll find the connection was waiting for NTS (15 secs twice).
I did not suggest not using NTS as a solution, but merely offered him a test case yo show the delay WAS caused by NTS. Which makes more sense to me than just turn off HT because of some problem 2 years ago (which was a real problem by the way).
