Comment 2 for bug 390508

As I understand the code, the "expire_timeout" variable is first initialized
with a default, then the same value is used later to define an array and
then to set the expiration timeout for the notification. I don't see any
code that reads the notification timeout from the command line and sets the
"expire_timeout" variable accordingly.

Anyway, regardless of where the problem lies, the expiration timeout can
only be the default "5 seconds" - there's no way to change this value.

DRM 'manages access' in the same way that jail 'manages freedom'.
