I know :-). This is the next issue I want to address once the issue above is solved.
In 2.2.x / trunk ProxyTimeout is ignored almost completely (it is only used for CONNECT).
Workers either use their own timeout set via the worker timeout parameter or
they use the server timeout as default, if no worker timeout is set. Although this (nearly)
works as documented I plan to change this to let the workers use the ProxyTimeout setting
as a default value in the case that they do not have their own timeout set via a parameter.
This sounds a lot more sane to me instead of using the server timeout here as a default value.
