It may have really hung before for some people. I remember leaving the
test running for more than half an hour and it was still stuck, whereas
now it completes within minutes.

I didn't verify this but the logical explanation seems to be that in
the previous setting the incoming connection got blocked by a firewall,
while the test sat there waiting for it in a blocking accept or analogous
call. If so, there could be another bug lurking in our timeout handling.
