Ah, you are right.  apr_socket_timeout_set() sets the send and receive
timeouts which are then handled by winsock.  Therefore apr_socket_recv()
doesn't need any additional wait code.  That's the information I

I see that Mr. Rowe has answered differently already, but I thought the

answer was this:

When the timeout is set (and stored in apr_socket_t), a Win32 socket 
option is set so that the Windows kernel handles the timeout without
having to use multiple syscalls to perform the same function.
