Graph QL: productCreate returns timeout error, but product is created anways

Wondering if anyone else has noticed this behavior, but when trying to create a product with many variants using the productCreate mutation, I'm getting a timeout error from the GraphQL api. 


I saw this post and will try the suggestions there:


However, what's more concerning to me, is that after I get the timeout error from the GraphQL API, if I look in my shopify instance a few minutes later I can see that the product was actually created successfully anyways!  Has anyone else noticed that behavior and is there any way to avoid it?  Feels like a serious bug to me - if my code thinks there was an error and retries the operation, I'll end up with duplicate products..
