Yes, it can be automaticly aborted if it doesn't get data from the
server within a specific time. If this happens it will not return a
MYSQL_RES structure but instead a NULL pointer and set the error flag.

I tried to explain this in my previous mail. Short answer is to
check how sql/mysqld.cc uses it!
