Actually, I discovered the real cause of the hangs: the DRB (distributed
Ruby) library tests crash for some reason, and they don't properly
terminate some processes they have started. These runaway processes make
the buildds hang forever.

I am thus disabling the DRB tests, and removing the timeout I set in the
last upload, since I believe it will not be needed anymore.
