    Don't retry downloading descriptors when we've timed out
    
    Presently one of our dirauths (tor26) is having some health issues. In
    particular connection resets and timeouts.
    
    This has revealed a couple issues. First is that python doesn't always honor
    its socket timeouts. Though rare, our requests to tor26 sometimes hang for
    hours despite imposing a one minute timeout. Second, we retry requests even
    when our timeout has been reached (making callers effectively wait three 
times
    as long as they asked).
    
    The first of these issues is still baffling me. Unfortunately I've seen it, 
but
    can't reliably repro. The second issue however is pretty straight forward so
    fixing it.
