I think that you can set the timeout with dbsetimeout() (though I am
unsure if it was already there in 2.10).
If the error is received in the DBlib error handler it should be
possible to simply return INT_CONTINUE (I *think* - I don't have the
manuals here, I'm on a trip in Switzerland :-) from the error handler to
ignore the timeout.
