FindWindow timeouts

After chatting to some people on IRC about windows message handling, I
remembered a bug I hit where a frozen window could kill everything
because FindWindow sends a message to every window with no timeout (to
get the window text).

Is this right? Wouldn't it be better to make FindWindow more robust by
sending messages with a timeout so if one window in an app (or anothe
process) has frozen, it doesn't kill the caller?
