Hi Tim,
Which version of Geronimo?

The default transaction timeout is 600 seconds.

To globally override the default, assuming Geronimo 2.1.1:

Stop your server.

Edit var/config/config.xml

Locate the following element:

     <module name="org.apache.geronimo.configs/transaction/2.1.1/car">

And add the following TransactionManager GBean attribute override:

         <gbean name="TransactionManager">
             <attribute name="defaultTransactionTimeoutSeconds">3600</ 

That should give you a default of 1 hour.

Offhand, don't recall how to (if you can) override on a container/bean/ 
method basis...
