      Description

      It is possible that the auth process may timeout with the default gen_server 5000 milliseconds timeout value. I have seen this occur with the function auth:get_cookie/1 which is called from erlang:get_cookie/0. It would be better if a timeout could be passed, but the auth module is documented as deprecated, so it appears to require a separate erlang:get_cookie/1 function unless the auth module could use infinity timeout values safely.
