This bug is very much the same as bug 797294. Place of timeout is different and it usually happens on winxp.

Since bug 797294 timeout happens at a later point in the test. It seems to me winxp machines are extremely slow and they timeout before finishing the test.

This is sad. I see only two solutions:

- add more time to the test. how was it sufficient until recently, and now it's not? Our test machines should be faster in time, not slower...
- split the test into two tests - which is the same as above, but harder to maintain.

Thoughts? Am I missing something?
