...and you can tune ssh behavior with respect to timeouts [from ssh man 
page]:

     ConnectionAttempts
       Specifies the number of tries (one per second) to make before
       falling back to rsh or exiting.  The argument must be an integer.
       This may be useful in scripts if the connection sometimes fails.
       The default is 4.

Examples:

	ssh -o ConnectionAttempts=1	# command line
	ConnectionAttempts 1		# in $HOME/.ssh/config
