Hi Joe,

ok, my thought was that extending the time out didn't affect the running 
time of the test
and since the signal is handled by a separate thread a busy system might 
be the cause.
I removed the re-raise of the signal so the test will fail if the signal 
is not received
even after the longer timout.

Webrev updated in place,

Thanks, Roger
