Hello,

This is a follow-up of the issue reported by Ricardo here:

When running this command:

Toggle snippet (3 lines)
guix system init ~/guix/gnu/system/examples/desktop.tmpl /tmp

and simulating a connection loss, in the middle of its execution, this
way:

Toggle snippet (3 lines)
sudo iptables -A INPUT -s 141.80.181.40 -j DROP

the init commands hangs forever. Looks like we are missing a timeout
somewhere.

Thanks,

Mathieu
