Yeah, I saw those changes in CVS. Guess my custom 3.5 minute timeout patches
will be obsolete with the next RC.

 Basically we have our backend servers doing copying from the mbox to a pop
file for message retrieval. With a couple of users having a mbox file >
500MB the timeouts were causing them pain. This and other things were
killing my I/O on my backend servers.  Fortunately, I'm migrating them (and
everybody else) to maildir, so the 3min timeout should be more than ample
for them.

Thanks again.
