Unfortunately I cannot help you Geoff ! It's a black hole I still have in
the code I wrote. Yes, the timeout management regarding the Connection
code. I remember I asked a programmer of ghttp library how to manage
timeouts ... And he told me that they don't use timeouts at all. I didn't
give a deep look at the code, but I trusted him ... Sorry ... ;-)

Where can I find some info regarding timeout managements or HTTP client
code writing?
