I guess there is a race condition with the driver:
1) camera.setPictureSize is asynchronous and run first.
2) camera.getPictureSize is synchronous and run second.
3) 2 apparently may be completed before 1 is processed.

In some cases we might get an event indicating a state change which implies the parameter change was processed, but often we may be forced to rely upon a timeout period (or polling).

Perhaps the best solution is to check it immediately, if it fails, arm a timeout, wait 100ms, and try the check again and only fail the test if both the first and optional second tests fail.

[Approval Request Comment]
Bug caused by (feature/regressing bug #): 1054803
User impact if declined: None as this only changes a test case. Test case will continue to fail intermittently and nag on bugzilla.
Testing completed: Ran mochitests to ensure test case passes.
Risk to taking this patch (and alternatives if risky): Very low. Test case fails intermittently, at worst this will increase the frequency since the try shows it passes at least once. No change to the product so it cannot regress otherwise.
String or UUID changes made by this patch: N/A

Note this cannot land on inbound/mozilla-central first because the problem (and the code!) now only exists on the 2.2 branch. This was fixed on mozilla-central as part of a much larger change (bug 1062387) which would be preferable not to uplift.
