I'm not sure having this one test take an hour is fair to the other
1,000's of tests.
It it can't run in under 5min, I'd question the test, maybe it's
sleeping or blocking
too much if that is the case.
Part of the goal in all this was to provide wide solid test coverage
in a reasonable amount
of time, but if we allow many tests to run for an hour, that's a bit
of a problem.
Regardless, I don't think this test takes an hour, I'll put a 10min
timeout on it
and see how that goes. But I suspect it will run in well under 5min.
