#8923: cron timeout is too short

 Many users have reported  that 2.7 cron sometimes fails to publish future
 And it is further reported that it depends on the number of jobs on the
 cron queue - when the queue is too long, it will miss some.

 I believe this is because we set the timeout value too short:

 wp_remote_post($cron_url, array('timeout' => 0.01, 'blocking' => false));

 When making a request to wp-cron.php, it won't return until all cron jobs
 are executed.  And 0.01 is just too short time span. It doesn't hurt to
 give it sufficent time, such as 10 minutes. It will return as long as the
 mature crons are fired up and executed (in most cases, it's going to be at
 most a few seconds ).
