[httperf] timeout

I have a question about the --timeout parameter.

When doing this: httperf --server=athens.pm.org --uri=/big --timeout=10

The file 'big' is about 7MB large.
The operation times out after a bit more than 10 seconds, which is very 
different from what a browser does.

I was looking at the bandwidth of the connection, and there was data 
coming and going during these 10 seconds

Is this the normal expected httperf behavior?
I would expect the timeout to be reset when the server responds at a 
specific point?

The man page is not very clear on this, please help me out on this.
