Re: timeout in ldapsearch.c

ldapsearch(1) supports a search timelimit but no timeouts.
The search timelimit, is a protocol parameter, requests
the server only spend so much time doing the search.
Timeouts are API timers associated with certain calls.

The command line tools are meant to model protocol operations.
I recommend using resource limits to restrict a tool to
a particular amount of time.
