thank you for your replies!

I used waitfor because it's the simplest and shortest way to have reproducible code. The issue I'm having is obviously not with waitfor, but with another exe, but this doesn't change the fact that I need a way to exit as soon as the called process exits or the timeout ends. I don't care what the called process does. I know that the process exited, and the docs for proc.communicate say "Wait for process to terminate". Well, the process terminates, but "communicate" doesn't exit. It doesn't say "communicate will hang as long as the pipes are open".
Plus: the "python.exe" process doesn't actually timeout!!! It just exits (with exception, but that's not important), and I would like to get the error from stderr! While I can't get it because "communicate" raises an exception...
