the google-chrome repository is often a "miss" - thus causing apt to try connecting for ages, before it gives up. IS it possible to hit "I" or something similar when this happens?

You could try this fix to speed up the google repository update time.

Thank you jpope!
echo "Acquire::http::Pipeline-Depth "0";" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/90localsettings
fixes it. I guess it basically tells apt to only look once (first level). Could there be any problems with this setting beinge implemented globally? I always wonder if changing the default is a good idea :-)
Thanks again :-)
