I reinstalled everything from scratch (it's a VPS dedicated just for 
gitlab), with the latest version and I have it running now. The reason 
for timeout it seems is that I missed the step to precompile assets. 
That thing really takes a while...

However, `service gitlab start` still fails unless I manually symlink 
the .gitlab_shell_secret into /usr/local/share/gitlab-shell/. I am 
starting it as root (of course) but, again, the rcvars are unchanged by 
me, app_user is default, "git".
