One issue might be that this isn't in the documentation.  What you said
is actually different than what the documentation says.  The docs say
it's the time the socket will *wait* for data, not the time between read
operations, and if the method is related to the Socket.setSoTimeout
method than that says something different still (i.e. the max amount of
time a read operation will wait for data).

I'm not 100% sure which is actually correct, but I'm guessing probably
the last one.
