Hi Ivo -
We are aware of this and are working diligently on finding the solution. Please check out the alerts page on our support portal for updates on this problem:
I will add another post here once we have resolved the issue.

Yes.. sorry about this, we should have this fixed now. We apologize for this problem continually re-emerging. Long story on the cause.. but seems to be related to dealing with 'attacks' coming to our servers.
Please let me know if this continues to be a problem.
Well, I've logged in 3 times since the last post above.
1st time I got a peculiar screen telling that there was problem because of simultaneous logins, after which I simply tried logging in again, and was successful.
2nd time I got the timeout.
3rd time (seconds after the 2nd time) I was logged in successfully.
So, it seems to me that the login is not yet 100% reliable.
