Timeout trying to connect to a database

I've just created a new database on my hosted server, and can connect fine to it using SQL Server Management Studio. However, when I try to connect via LinqPad, I get a message "Execution Timeout Expired. The timeout period elapsed prior to completion of the operation or the server is not responding" when I try to open the dropdown next to "Specify new or existing database." If I click the "Display all in a TreeView" then the Test button is enabled, and if I click it, it tells me the connection was successful.

Anyone any ideas? I've obviously entered the right connection info, it just won't populate the dropdown. I've successfully connected to other database on this shared hosting before, so it's not that.

Thanks for any help you can give
