I thought the same, but I have discussed this with Alexey and and told
that a very big timeout is necessary to deal with bad link quality.
That's why we have let it at 5 minutes.
However, I think it make sense to make this an option to override the
timeout value from the config file directly.

Yaws says there is an error, because he tries to push something back to
the client socket, whereas there is no more remote peer.
However, this is not a real "error" as from Yaws sysadmin point of view,
the system is working correctly. This is a "client-side error" and
should probably be reported as an info.
The same happens when you download a big file and interrupt the download
from the client side. 

I will submit the idea to change this to the Yaws mailing list.
