Rather than allowing ident would it be possible to do a REJECT (via iptables -t filter -A OUTPUT -j REJECT) (I'm not sure if this can be a policy or not) that way the ident will fail immediately verses timing out?  That is if you don't want the ident to happen.  Seeing as how a LOT of servers don't even support ident any more this might just as well be an option.
