I was just about to give that patch a test. Is this just something that
is going to be very infrequent and only have the side effect of cutting
someone off because they were a fraction of a second too slow ?

If we're just talking about a few milliseconds to decide between success
and failure then is that such a big deal when the timeout is often in
the 10s of seconds.

Drat, I was looking forward to kicking users off when they're connecting
over a bad link and consuming too many resources.

The one-off Timeout is a pain.
