in the doc, we can read...

28 Operation timeout. The specified time-out period was reached
according to the conditions.

i choose for a FTP server ( in commandline no specific
option, the server gives timeout (10060 winsock code):
curl: (28) Timeout was reached

i choose in commandline "-m 1" for another FTP server ( ,
CURL stops properly at 1s of download:
curl: (28) Operation timed out after 1000 milliseconds with 13927 out of
39888 bytes received

it is a timed-out OK in both case but in first case from server (i
haven't file needed / it is an server error code)
and in thze second case the "error" cames from me (i have filesize
needed ;) why using same error code ?
