Fixed in 846c99dedcc6 ("Queue WHOIS commands").

I wondered if there's a timeout for the queuing mechanism - it's not guaranteed that a WHOIS command will generate a response, e.g. when the upstream queries remote servers

Hm, can this really happen? If so we should clarify it in modern-irc. A timeout would be good to have regardless.

Fwiw a scenario is described here[1]i

I thought servers had a list of in-progress WHOS per client, and would send a synthetic error when needed. But that's not the case.
