Using PerformancePoint Dashboard Designer 2010 I can connect to all but 2 of the lists in my site.  The tasks list and another custom list I have are failing the connection test with a "Unable to retreive list." message.  Other lists as indicated all work fine.  The task list has been customized to add some additional fields used for workflows, and the other list I am attempting to connect to has about 35 columns.

On the server, the following event is logged:

Looks like I found the answer to this one myself.  I had 5 additional people lookup fields in this list.  After deleting and recreating these as single line of text fields, I was able to connect to the list.  This isn't so much a solution as it is a workaround.  It happens that this list is being populated by a workflow, so as long as I populate those fields with user names from the workflow and no-one has to manually edit the list items, this is acceptable.  Seems like Microsoft needs to change their query methods or provide some access to timeout values on the queries.?.
