# solver_parameter('timelimit') doesnt work

Hi,

I have an MILP problem and trying to solve it with Sage, GLPK solver. As I want to terminate the problem before getting the optimum answer, I am using the `p.solver_parameter("timelimit", 60)`

. I have also used

```
try:
p.solve()
except MIPSolverException:
b = p.get_backend()
print('best known opjective bound', b.best_known_objective_bound())
```

However, the solver doesn't stop!!! It keeps runing. I guess the `time limit`

part doesn't work.
Its interesting that the `p.solver_parameter("time limit")`

its affected, as I am printing its value before passing the `p.solve()`

. I have also tried `p.solver_parameter( backend.glp_simplex_or_intopt, backend.glp_intopt_only)`

and printed the `p.solver_parameter("time limit_intopt")`

. It's printing `60000`

which is right.
I have no idea why it keeps running.

Could anyone help me with this issue?

Thanks in advance,

Cheers, Aissan
