on regular shutdown , it will wait for requests to end or to timeout.
Only on stop (interrupt for interruptable samplers) , it interrupts pending
requests , so by default it will not end.
What do you suggest ?

if you have a patch showing how yoy would do it, it would be great

Maybe, but I feel those are reasonable timeouts nowadays.
