I just wasted a whole bunch of time trying to repro/debug bug 1324908 on aurora where the behavior is non-determinitic. The sometimes failing behavior on aurora turns out to be unrelated to the bug on beta, and is actually due to us failing a timeout in some scenarios.

One example is printing:

This tends to fail if the entire document hasn't been pre-rendered before requesting a print (either by scrolling to the end, or by a previous, perhaps failed, print).
