[New-bugs-announce] [issue46999] test_multiprocessing_fork running without any timeout

New submission from Matthias Klose <doko at debian.org>:

the test_multiprocessing_fork test is a bit unreliable, at least on both the Debian and Ubuntu test infrastructures, sometimes running for 100+ hours.  When running locally, I cannot reproduce these issues.  Note that the test and build infrastructure is usually limited to 4-6 cores and 20GB of RAM (including swap). What else could be an issue for these hangs?

How can this test reliably timeout?  I know it takes a few hours on slow architectures even when succeeding.
