Comment (by BellaBerlin):

 I described a somehow related issue together with my fix here:

 As ryan pointed out, the timout is bumped up to 1 second when using
 '''cURL'''. This causes an unnecessary 1 second delay on every cron
 execution, which - depending on the setup - can be quite significant. For
 example, [http://www.yetim.de/ my blog] checks one search engine keyword
 rank every 2 seconds.

 My solution is to use '''stream''' transport instead, if a fractional
 timeout or a non-blocking request is used. For a proper fix I would also
 recommend using the new milliseconds feature from cURL 7.15.5 if
 supported, and only if not, fall back to stream.
