The disadvantage is that if the locks still don't clear by the time
the timeout is reached, you're just making the other process wait
longer before failing.

Most people don't do that, but you could.

The best solution is to find out what's holding the locks and make it
stop holding them for so long or use a narrower lock.  I usually find
these are a result of a transaction or an "INSERT...SELECT" that's
running too long.
