LWP::UserAgent 6.06 introduced the following default for timeout: $timeout = 3*60 unless defined $timeout; This breaks backward compatibility with modules that set an explicit 0 like Business::PayPal::API. Not so much a bug as a backward compatibility issue, so I’m not sure if it’s your fix or theirs or both. Just thought you should be aware.
