RFR (XS) : 8141641: Runtime: implement range for ErrorLogTimeout

I think the upper range should be much higher.   This sleep is also 
something that keeps the jvm alive if you are debugging and have 
multiple places that crash, and haven't set ShowMessageBoxOnError. 
Setting this flag to something very high will prevent the debugger from 
timing out with:

           err.print_raw_cr("# [ timer expired, abort... ]");

which is really annoying.   I'd almost suggest MAX_INT as the upper 
range, but maybe 60*60*60   60 hours would do.
