In rare cases of network problems, the hook_connect will wait indefinitely for
the child process to connect to remote host.

Solution: add a timer for connection, and kill child if the timer is reached,
and return an error code with timeout to callback. Then plugins like irc will
be notified of a timeout, and will try to reconnect later to server.
