RMI stuck on network disconnection

I found out that an RMI call might never return on network disconnection and
will not throw RemoteException as expected.
The scenario is very simple:

1. Find a remote stub (the stub should be behind a router).
2. Physically disconnect the server from the LAN.
3. Invoke a method from the client, the client can stuck without an
exception up to 30 min.

Any ideas?
