Philor pointed out that in bug 916765, comments 91 and below don't really pertain to that bug, but rather a hang in the xpcshell selftests. Looking through a handful of logs and counting dots, it looks like it times out at the test I added recently for timeouts: "testHangingTimeout". My take away is that the code path in the python harness for timing out a test occasionally itself diverges. I think I observed as much poking around bug 1066728.

I guess we should to skip that test in automation, and log the test names so we can figure out what's going on if this comes up again.

Disable xpcshell selftest for timeouts due to intermittent timeouts.

This is pretty depressing, we should figure out what's actually wrong.
