The timeout for what?

This ThreadAbortException business is quite something to get a handle 
on.  For instance, if you abort the thread within a method called by 
reflection, when Invoke() finishes the exception is a 
TargetInvocationException and not a ThreadAbortException, confusing my 
catch clauses higher up.  Is that the right behavior?  It also doesn't 
do the usual automatic re-throwing of the ThreadAbortException after 
catch clauses, so the thread goes on if the exception is caught at any
