[Bug-wget] timeout question (regarding the code)

the wget man page says a timeout value of 0 means 'forever'.
Even if seldom used, 0 seems to be a legal value.

There is a warning in gnutls.c about a not initialised value:
gnutls.c: In function 'wgnutls_read_timeout':
gnutls.c:163:54: warning: 'timer' may be used uninitialized in this function 

Having a value of zero in opt.read_timeout would likely crash wget.

But to fix this I need clarification.
What should the code do in case of opt.read_timeout == 0 ?
At the moment it looks like zero means 'immediate'. But than, is the man page 
wrong ?
