application, in case the host is not responding/not available, I have to 
wait the roughly 30 seconds that it takes for the connect to timeout.

I had the same problem with synapse, but there it has been solved 
several years ago by introducing a connection timeout (besides, I can 
abort a socket operation from another thread, though it only works under
