Yes, if you're at T5 and the server restarts (say due to lack of
players), the turn is reset to T0, a .serv file specified with -r is
reloaded, and the timeout for the first turn of the new game is 60
seconds (and subsequent turns are 40 seconds again). I think the same is
true of the 'first_timeout' option. Is that not what you want? Or have I
misunderstood your question?

(If you contrive to restart the server without the 'timeoutincrease'
command being issued again, the dynamic timeout stuff carries on where
it left off, so in this case the timeout is stuck at 60 seconds. That's
arguably a bug in 'timeoutincrease'.)

One thing that first_timeout can do that timeoutincrease can't
(currently) do is to allow an unlimited first turn (as timeoutincrease
is currently disabled if timeout=0).
