TIMEOUT DURING FILE POST

Has anyone looked at the issue of a file transfer failing during a POST operation when operating under Webactions? It seems like a sufficiently large file could fail for a number of reasons. I'd actually like to be able to time-out the operation. For instance, if you're buffering input, a (really) short wait for each buffer-full should be sufficient to indicate a need to abort the transfer from server end, especially if you have a smallish buffer. If you don't do that under control somehow, how do you determine that things have collapsed? Consider a big transfer that the user gets tired of and cancels, or backs out of. Then the session could/should still be alive but the status of the data that was uploaded is undetermined. How does that get handled now, and is that sufficient?
