Subject: CSS, issue with PVUtil.writePV timeout

Hi All,

I'm using CSS 3.2.16 with BOY.

I have a script to write to some PV using writePV:

timeout = 9
PVUtil.writePV("MyCam:cam1:Acquire" , 1, timeout)

From the documentation, even if not super-explicit, I would assume the timeout is in s.
The writing to PV usually works, but sometimes after a very long time I get a pop-up in CSS saying:

"Failed to write PV:MyCam:cam1:Acquire
Failed to connect to the PV in 9000 seconds.
Reason:
Failed to connect to the PV in 9000 seconds."

This sounds like a bug.
I will try changing the timeout from 9 to 0.009 in the script, but has anybody encountered this problem before?

Thanks,
Isabella
