Hi, Joe

The typical run time of this test is ~18s (on my modestly-equipped 
laptop).  So the test does run within a reasonable amount of time, IMO - 
under normal circumstances, anyway.

The increased timeout is to cover the less seldom test run 
configurations involving Xcomp.  Judging by when the test was added and 
the dates of the failed runs, I think this test has timed out since it 
was introduced, and there has not been an Xcomp regression.

The test checks for a recursive initialization issue (8168075), and so 
needs to launch JVMs using various combinations of system 
classloader/security manager+policy/various module types.  For this 
reason I think Xcomp hits this test particularly hard, recompiling the 
startup code on every VM launch.  I think we want to maintain thorough 
test coverage here, though.

Looking more into the failures, the worst case looks to be getting not 
quite halfway through the test.  We should be able to get away with a 
more modest increase to the timeout (600, instead of 1200), and still 
have the test pass, if you would prefer.
