No, you can't time out at all. Remeber, as soon as you
time out and drop the connection (TCP RST or FIN) you're
dead - the client will exhibit this bug.

There is no way around this with different timeouts, it's
very simple - drop a connection to a Win9x client, suffer
an oplock break bug in the client. No other way around this
client bug.
