	This seems like a general problem described here:

	There's a certain point in time after which there's no point in  
waiting any longer.  I imagine a reasonable default is somewhere  
around a second, but I imagine I could choose two people at random who  
didn't think it was reasonable and they wouldn't be able to decide  
whether it's too large or too small.

	I filed this as a separate bug:

	Definitely should fail properly, but this is a weakness in my test
