This is what I do remember (I use gnokii for automatic sending SMS), that's 
why I wrote several lines below that:

Extracting a part from a text without substantial surroundings can make the 
meaning different. But let's leave this matter, please.

Much more important is to deal with a) that concerns to gnokii. Let me remind

If there was a possibility to set the timeout a parameter way, then users 
could make gnokii working even both way:

    -  If set by mobile operator's properties it could minimize getting errors
       (even calling programs could set its value by actual conditions).

    -  If set great enough it could behave as the semi-infinite timeout.

Wouldn't it be nice?
