Yup, interrupt is the correct way of telling a thread to stop in the 
middle of processing. There are 4 different interrupt cases, described 
in the following link:

I can have multiple threads accessing the same host. The fact that an 
interrupt can leave the Transport in a bad state is very annoying, 
because then other threads will pick up the same bad transport and keep 
using it. It is something like this that can cause log files to be 
filled with errors, as the timeout never has a chance to occur.
