We came across a problem where a blocking read would always time out
after 400ms (if I remember right) regardless of the time out being set
to 100ms or 10s.
However this was not on the latest version of Mono and it might be fixed
now, if it was Mono's fault at all. We simply wrote a quick wrapper that
allowed longer timeouts and didn't investigate further.
