Found the culprit in tests/lib/util.c: the timeout interval is
hard-coded to 10 seconds.  The timeout can be completely disabled if
environment variable TP_TESTS_NO_TIMEOUT is non-null.  I've been
retrying the test runs with increasing timeout values (last try was
60 seconds), and "test-contact-lists" still won't run to completion.
Might actually have a legitimate bug on my hands :-).
