[zope2-tracker] [Bug 143357] Re: zeopack.py / ClientStorage.py: deadlock on non existent storage

Here's a different angle on the same issue:

I'm trying to make zeopack fail without hanging when faced by a ZEO
server it can't talk to.

I set wait_timeout in the pack2 function in zeopack.py:
 cs = ClientStorage(addr, storage=storage, wait=1, wait_timeout=3, read_only=1)

However, this has no effect because in ClientStorage._wait, the call to
'self._rpc_mgr.connect(sync=1)' hangs before the timeout 'while' loop is

I'm looking at
but the code is the same in Zope-2.11.3-final

This is what a failing zeopack run looks like:

   raise DisconnectedError()

This loops forever.
