For what it is worth, that explanation more or less mirrors my recollection of why that wasn't a zero to poll, or infinite, timeout.  Working around broken something; I would have said more likely MacOS-X of the period, which I think still has a broken implementation of the `poll` syscall, but I don't fully recall.

(That was still in the era I payed significant attention to TRAMP development)

Archeology has uncovered
which relates to that comment. Sorry, I haven't anything else.

The respective commit in the Tramp repository was CVS 2.516 from
10-Dec-06, if that matters :-)

In that message thread, the OP has mentioned another problem after I've
added the timeout and the comment; this seems to be unrelated.

Best regards, Michael.
