Ah, $#*@.  :-)

This may explain another bug report I got via IRC.  My apologies.  I
tested on 12.1 only.

Thanks for the patch.  I'll take a look at this and figure out the best
way to fix it.  A current workaround would be to change --contimeout to
--timeout in line 753 of /usr/bin/sbopkg.

Update to follow shortly...
