I'm trying to provoke an AJAX timeout to check that my error handling is correctly set up.
I've set Ext.Ajax.timeout to various values (e.g. 2, 2000) but my AJAX calls (which I've artificially made take a long time, ~20s) happily continue to succeed.
I've verified that Ext.Ajax.timeout really is set at the point of the AJAX call. I'm using an up-to-date Firefox and ExtJS 3.2.1. I'm using ext adapter (my forum searches on this topic sometimes point the finger at the jquery adapter).
Should I expect Ext.Ajax.timeout work reliably, or are there limitations not mentioned in the docs?
