I agree it is time to give another approach to these tests a try. This 
set of tests muddies our overall test results with intermittent 
failures. I suggest giving Chris's approach a try, monitoring any 
changes in the failure rate of the tests for a month or two, and then 
reassessing if the tests need further revisiting.
