Comment(by lsansonetti@…):

 I can see 2 problems. First, the {{{1+1 while true}}} expression will
 never trigger a pthread cancelation point, which means it can't be
 interrupted (and timeout.rb uses thread cancelation). Second, it looks
 like current timeout.rb doesn't even cancel {{{loop { 1+1 }}}} which
 triggers cancelation points.

 Your patch seems to fix the second problem. I don't believe the first
 problem is even fixable with the current macruby implementation.
