Port the change

We're seeing this quite a bit on try server, so I think we should just port this:

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #758732 +++

The current delay of 1 is not enough.  As Ehsan has suggested, I'm using timeout of 2 a long time as a local path.  When I sometimes forget to apply it, I get the conftest.exe permission denied error.

Proposing to raise the timeout.

Just seen this on the new ESR branch we're setting up. I don't really want to risk hitting this on 17/esr, so taking forward onto beta now as a non-code change.

Still there... but rarely.
