Wine Test Shell - timeouts during test runs too short?

When running the Wine Test Shell to run the tests as part of
http://test.winehq.org/, there are several timeouts in different
These may be valid timeouts, but on my Vista test machine ddraw:d3d
and msi:install generate the timeout message box part way through the
test run, even though they continue and complete. Those tests are just
The others (such as kernel32:debugger) may be the same - especially
when you get mixed results from different runs.
Because of this, the timeout length should be increased (I would say
at least doubled, to allow the long-running tests to run through).
Another thing... I find it breaks the idea of an automated test run to
have to watch it to OK the timeout messages. I know that UAC and the
shfileop tests bring up interactive dialogs, but these are from within
Windows itself, and will be dealt with by the timeout/test killer part
of the Wine Test Shell.
This would help make it easier for people to run the tests more often.
