We've been bumping into this pretty regularly lately. I think it's time to bite the bullet and up the chunks from 3 to 4.

Unfortunately, the chunking change barely made a dent in linux debug m-dt1 runtime AFAICT. Only reduced the number of jobs from just over 16000 to a bit under 15000. And the debugger tests continue to kill us within it. I'd push for 5 chunks, but who knows how much it'd actually help. It seems like this problem is really boiling down to the bigger issue of having saner ways to balance the chunk runtimes.
