1. It did not work. What units is the timeout anyway? I waited 2 seconds
   and 2 minutes and it did not fire.
2. I need to do some cleanup if there is a timeout (kill the stuck process).
   How do I register a cleanup function?
3. No matter how the timeout is done (unless you start a watcher process and
   kill -KILL the test process) it can break (masking signal mask, changing
   timers, catching signal).
