As you've witnessed this default value doesn't work well in some cases.

So now, this would need to be rephrased from current 0 or 1, to 0 to N, where
N depends on config settings (timeout value).

(nope, just thinking aloud)

If the fixed value doesn't work for all use cases, then its not fixed variable
anymore and should be variable, thus config option, probably finetuned per

Question is, if it's worth the hassle for a feature which is targeted more
towards the expert users.
