More modern versions of WP fix this. Basically, wp_remote_post has one
of five different ways to do its job, depending on the capabilities of
the particular server installation. Two of those have problems with
sub-second timeout values, so those two use the PHP ceil function to
force the timeout up to 1 second.
So this should not be an issue with any recent version of WordPress.
