I added a timeout because test_urllibnet fails with a timeout after 15 minutes on the ARM buildbot and other tests of the same file also use a timeout.

I tried but failed to reproduce the timeout.

I ran the test after my change and it passes so I considered that it was ok. I understand your rationale for timeout, non blocking socket and read() returning None.

Can we modify the test to use a selector to wait until the socket is ready and only read available bytes, rather than reading all data?

Using a local server would also avoid blocking too long (take less than 15 min).
