 Ok, i've done some research:

 First, my code:
 $post_data['tip'] = 'adfadf';
 $fetch_url = 'http://mantisbt.org/bugs/login.php';
 $response = wp_remote_post($fetch_url, array('body' => $post_data));
 fb($response); //FirePHP

 This produces the timeout error, if $post_data isn't empty. But the
 interesting thing: It works well, with '''every non-Mantis URL'''.

 This ''might'' be a bug in MantisBT itself. You can try it with the URL
 above, it the same behaviour as with my own Mantis Installation.

 I found this in the apache error log: (70014)End of file found: mod_fcgid:
 can't get data from http client

 Since Mantis uses POST for login, too, it looks like a WP Bug for me...
