This commit changes the count n_sent_push_requests to time_t based
push_request_timeout. This is more in line to our other timeouts which
are also time based instead of number retries based.

This does not change the behaviour but it prepares allowing to extend
the pull request timeout during a pending authentication. As a user
visible change we print the the time we waited for a timeout instead

Also update the man page to actually document that hand-window controls
this timeout.

Patch V2: grammar fix in manual page

Compared with V1 and spelling is now fixed. Compiled with MSVC, code looks fine.

Your patch has been applied to the master branch.

Only very lightly tested.

Observation: it introduces "*session" and "*ks" to send_push_request() 
which might be needed by later patches on, but are not used by code 
in this patch yet.
