I still prefer to not-depends on socket receiving timeout.  But I'm fine 
if you want to move on with it.

As we can close the super socket in the current implementation, it 
implies that application can handle it already.  So you may not need the 
system property and 5 times retries.  I think it's fine just call 
fatal() for the first timeout.
