HTTPC timeout value not acting right


If I execute the statement


where the target IP address does not exist, the command times out in about 14 seconds and not in 1 second as the command argument should result. If I execute the command as


the timeout is the same 14 seconds and not the 3000 ms which the documentation gives as the default for the timeout.

Why does the observed timeout not agree with either an argument value or the documented default?

I'm running EOS 0.6.
