Yes, that's the problem. In most cases I've seen, the cause for a
timeout does not go away quickly, so such a programming pattern tends
to spread the congestion even further.
I think there has been quite a bit of research in the Erlang context
how processes can avoid increasing load in an already overloaded
situation, but I can't find the papers right now.
