Interrupting (^C) an internet operation

I cannot interrupt the likes of "TYPE "http://..." with Ctrl-C.

Could you add that capability to the wish list?


v:\> timer & type "" & timer
Timer 1 on: 14:11:12
TCC: (Sys) A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond.
Timer 1 off: 14:11:34  Elapsed: 0:00:21.21
the timeout seems to be 21 seconds, an odd number, a bit long considering that I can't interrupt it, and nowhere near the timeouts of 180/180/180 seen in the OPTION dialog.
In fact, it appears that no Option\Internet\HTTP\timeout setting greater than 21 works; such gives a 21-second timeout. Settings less than 21 work.
