Unless the user configured a different timeout value in his/her configuration we used to set timeout to a negative value on any platform with 32 bit longs. This patch should make the behavior the same on all platforms.
This timeout is probably still too long, but setting it negative made it infinite.
The code should be fixed to use a proper default.
I see no problem in waiting for more than 10 minutes, but it should be user cancelable within at least something like 30 seconds, preferably sooner or the user will just kill his application.
