Details

For reftest:

If a browser hangs, the test frameworks currently just kill it off. Now that
browsers are going to launch subprocesses, we need to make sure:

* if the process exits normally, there aren't any subprocesses left around
* if the process is killed off, there aren't orphan processes which could cause
weird problems on future test runs
This is an issue for runreftest.py, not reftest itself.  And runreftest.py in turn uses automation.py (automation.runApp) for things like this, just like mochitest does.
