[nycphp-talk] php script timeout not working

Hey, folks. I've got a script that uploads a file from my server to
Amazon's S3. It works fine, and I'm using ignore_user_abort(true) so
that I can call it, but don't have to wait for the response. Great. Now
I am trying to create the file that will call the uploader and then die.
It basically looks like this:

$handle = fopen("http://localhost/s3uploader.php", "r");
stream_set_timeout($handle, 1);

But neither timeout is working - it sits and spins while the upload
takes place. Any ideas?
