Patch is easily understandable but I'd like to see some changes to it.

Why do you keep this define around if it is substituted for a global
variable? Just get rid of that define and substitute it with the

Please conform to the used coding style. I agree the extra spaces are
ugly but its even uglier mixing styles.

What about a multiplier (1000) so the environment variable is in ms? And
should there be a sanity check here for invalid input (= 0) and/or too
small (10ms?) and too large (10s?) values?
