[htdig] 3.1.5 -- Limiting Duration / Resources for HTDIG

I am running into some situations where HTDIG appears to be going into an
infinite loop. The pattern is that it either does, or does not, occur when
searching a specific website; re-attempting the HTDIG--against the same
site--usually produces the same result.

Is there some straightforward way to limit the number of bytes which can be
written into either wordlist or the log file; to ensure unconditional
termination of processing once this limit is exceeded? (In practice, HTDIG
is invariably still producing output when it's externally terminated; I
haven't run into any instances of looping without producing output).
