You also need a connect_with_timeout, which requires alarm().  In fact
the most common place for this specific to timeout is during connect()
I would bet, since that's where it'll get stuck if there's a firewall

There wasn't much being changed actually, all I did was record the current
"global" timeout length and restore it at the end of the rfc1413 module.
