    If `y-or-n-p-with-timeout' is broken on some platforms in certain
    situations does this not automatically imply that `with-timeout' is
    broken on these same platforms in those same situations?

Yes, the timeout won't work if the code in Emacs is not running timers.

Since it turns out there is no harm in running Lisp code within
BLOCK_INPUT, can we arrange to check Lisp timers in the
places that currently fail to do so?
