Description Geoffrey D. Bennett 2002-12-03 13:06:36 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0rc1) Gecko/20020417

Description of problem:
The following command should timeout in one second:
/usr/bin/lwp-request -t 1
(-t is documented as being the amount of time in seconds to wait for a response
from the server before returning a timeout error)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Run: /usr/bin/lwp-request -t 1

Actual Results:  The request took over 3 minutes to timeout.  The error is '500
Connect failed: connect: Connection timed out Connection timed out'

Expected Results:  The request should have timed out after 1 second with an
error '500 read timeout'.

Additional info:

This problem is present in RHL 7.3 (perl-libwww-perl-5.63-9) as well as RHL 8.0

upgrade to a newer version.

i cannot reproduce it on my test system:

altblue@nop:~$ time /usr/bin/lwp-request -t 1
500 read timeout

real    0m1.278s
user    0m0.220s
sys     0m0.032s

altblue@nop:~$ time /usr/bin/lwp-request -t 5
500 read timeout

real    0m5.256s
user    0m0.229s
sys     0m0.026s

altblue@nop:~$ rpm -q perl-libwww-perl
