On my machine, as I was developing the patch for bug 477975, test_nsIAccessible_comboboxes.xul caused infinite lops in the a11y test runs. The last info is that this file is being started, and then the whole test suite starts over.

The code changes alone in bug 477975 did not cause this, but when applying the test part, the problems came up. Disabling this file caused all the tests to pass consistently and without causing endless loops or hangs.
I think this might have to do with a case where we have a chain of tests (like in testActions) which encounters an exception. We probably need to do more try/catch, and do some SimpleTest.finish in the catch clause.
What's left of this bug after bug 494397 and 492956?
Depends on: 492956, 494397
there's no this test anymore and no similar disabled test on trunk
