We're doing application level timeouts. So we monitor our handles and
remove them from the multi handle when we think things are timed out.
This gives us a lot of flexibility and control.
I think that if there's no activity on any of the handles and you've
set CURLOPT_NOSIGNAL, then curl won't ever get interrupted and so
can't apply timeouts. You could make sure that your app doesn't block
for more than a few seconds which should give you enough granularity.
Daniel, et al.: what's the impact of calling into the curl multi with
a timeout even if the specified timeout hasn't expired?
All of that said, I've seen the timeouts inside curl work (giving a
curl error of 28), even with CURLOPT_NOSIGNAL in most of my scenarios.
Can you provide code?
