You are right, nested bb_min timeouts do not work correctly.
It will be fixed in release 5.7.

That would be surprising. I'd expect that when the 3600s timeout occurs
while you are within a nested bb_min, then that inner bb_min will be
terminated erroneously (before its 100s are over), and the outer bb_min
will not be terminated at all.
