Something many people seem to overlook is this phrase in that page:

"When called, *set_time_limit()* restarts the timeout counter from zero. 
In other words, if the timeout is the default 30 seconds, and 25 seconds 
into script execution a call such as set_time_limit(20) is made, the 
script will run for a total of 45 seconds before timing out."
