In the commlib, the connection_timeout member of the conneciton handle
determines how long a connection should live. By default this is 10 minutes, it
can be set a very long time (several years), but on 32 bit OS it's much shorter.

A clean solution would be to introduce a flag that determines if the timeout
should be obeyed or ignored.

Suggested Fix:
In file: cl_connection_list.c, function:
cl_connection_list_destroy_connections_to_close, line: 305, it is tested if the
connection is to be destroyed:

if (connection->last_transfer_time.tv_sec + h_timeout <= now.tv_sec) {
               if (connection->data_flow_type == CL_CM_CT_MESSAGE) {
                  CL_LOG(CL_LOG_WARNING,"got connection transfer timeout ...");

Here a flag use_connection_timeout could be added to determine if the timeout
should be obeyed. Add this flag to the connection handler struct and create
functions to set and get the state of this flag.
