fgets() hangs up to script timeout (60secs) on an opened fsockopen stream.
stream_set_timeout is set for 30 secs - but apparently does nothing.

For now i'll try to work around it using curl and the intranet squid proxy server.

Reproduce code:
$fp = fsockopen("", 443, $errno, $errstr, 30);
if($fp) {
    if(fputs($fp, $headers, strlen($headers))){

      $result = '';
      stream_set_timeout($fp, 30);  //should timeout in 30 secs

      while(!feof($fp)) {
        $result .=fgets($fp, 4096);  //scripts hangs up to script timeout in this line


      print $result;

Expected result:
$result gets printed or error gets thrown out somewhere.

Actual result:
Maximum execution time of 60 seconds exceeded in...

stream_get_meta_data() is set to TRUE, although no error/warning is
