Thanks.  I sort of feel like current-kill should time out, whether this new option is set or not, if that's possible in emacs lisp.

I use a similar patch myself.
And actually I tried to get it accepted, but it was turned down because
of the problems it introduces when the "current-kill" hangs (e.g. when
the holder of the selection is suspended).
We should add it together, conditional on some config var.
That will be for Emacs-23.2, tho.
