There seems to no way to abort a soap call when the response is chunked and none of the chunks exceed the timeout specified with ini_set('default_socket_timeout', 3).

Reproduce code:
###### File: client.php
ini_set('default_socket_timeout', 3);
$client = new SoapClient(NULL,
	    "location" => "", "uri" => "urn:xmethods-delayed-quotes", "style" => SOAP_RPC, "use" => SOAP_ENCODED, "trace" => 1, "connection_timeout" => 3
$response = ' [NO RESPONSE] ';
try {
	$response = $client->__call(
	    array(new SoapParam("ibm", "symbol")),
	    array("uri" => "urn:xmethods-delayed-quotes", "soapaction" => "urn:xmethods-delayed-quotes#getQuote")
} catch(Exception $e) {	print "Exception: " . $e->getMessage(); }
print $response;

###### File: server.php
	print '<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>';
	for ($i=0; $i<20; $i++) {
		print "<!-- $i -->";
		flush(); // The client will wait 20 seconds for the response. Without flush the client will drop the request after 3 seconds.
<SOAP-ENV:Envelope xmlns:SOAP-ENV="" xmlns:ns1="urn:xmethods-delayed-quotes" xmlns:xsd="" xmlns:xsi="" xmlns:SOAP-ENC="" SOAP-ENV:encodingStyle="">
                        <Result xsi:type="xsd:float">198.4234</Result>

Expected result:
The call duration should be about 3 seconds.

Actual result:
The actual call duration is 20 seconds.

No change with

Timeout is still not working.

This is not a bug.
"default_socket_timeout" sets timeout for single read() call. ext/soap breaks reading if nothing was received from server in "default_socket_timeout", but it doesn't assume that whole resonse must be read before it exceeded.

This is not a bug but feature request.
SoapClient needs additional option "request_timeout" (in additional to "connection_timeout").
