[erlang-questions] inets - http:request with invalid host ip

Of cource I put an ip which is not visible (and url also not there). 

2> test:test_url().
 Time for Synchronous request 189028171 microseconds ResSync={error,etimedout}
 Time for Asynchronous request 188972235 microseconds ResASync={ok,

Check the above results for time taken to execute http:request. (test code attached)

1.) It has taken a large amount of time to execute both requests
2.) And time difference to exit from Synchronous and Asynchronous request are approximately same.

Is this OK ???

What I am thinking is the time taken to perform Asynchronous request as not acceptable. Am I wrong ?
If the IP is not visible (or not available) Why such long time taken to give ANY result ?

Is this a bug ?

Thanks in advance,

Sanjaya Vitharana.
