When the local Safe Browsing database contains stale data (for example if updates aren't working because the server is down) we can use gethash to verify whether or not it's still valid.

What happens when gethash doesn't respond either? Do we stall? Do we have a very long timeout?

This investigation is related to bug 1032393.
The fact that gethash is unresponsive or returns an error doesn't appear to affect the client.
