Killing a runaway query either requires the application to surface this
functionality (eg: "Cancel" button) or a DBA to kill it for you.
A timeout will always work.

But it probably has to do with the thread that's currently executing
some query? Can you determine which thread it is and record the
time it uses before getting stalled? Or will the time during stalling
count towards the limit (this would mean that a timeout set on the
client equals the total time the query can reside on the server)?
