I successfully checked[1] this document. However, I think that you
have experienced a known bug. Details follow:

What can happen though is that when a server is unreachable, the
program might wait undefinitely until the TCP connection is open and
ignore the timeout for some reason. It is apparently a bug in
IO::Socket earlier than version 1.20 on Linux.

I need to upgrade the module, but I think that we would need to switch
to Perl 5.6 for that, so it would require some tests. I need to
doublecheck.
