Right. The 20s timeout is again a sign of brokenness.

If we expect something to fail, it should fail immediately, without
waiting for arbitrary timeouts.

And if we don't expect it to fail, why the timeout?

Of course we know it can fail (network problems, etc), so it's wrong
whatever way we look at it.
