I assume you mean you modified the $max_script_runtime variable.

Well, it looks like the value of max_script_runtime is not being
propogated everywhere that it should in ACID (read: a bug).  A 
work-aournd for this issue is to modifying the max_execution_time in      
config file (php.ini) of the PHP engine.
A patch has also been committed to CVS to correctly set the
max_execution_time based on the setting of max_script_runtime in
acid_conf.php.  This patch will obviate the need to modify the global PHP
