Thanks for taking care of that.
This is easier to reproducibe where netstat is not working (e.g. on the
kfreebsd-* buildds, something to do with the 8.1 kernel maybe).
But no wonder why it gets stuck - this is how it tries to timeout from a
"while true" loop in 14 different parts of the testsuite:

> nows=`date | cut -f 3 -d : | cut -f 1 -d " "`

Where nows = current second, but nowh = current minute... but might as
well be phase of the moon; it doesn't account for the minute or second
wrapping around past 59. If 'starts' is more than 4 it will run for up
to minute longer than it should. If 'starth' is 59 or possibly 58 it
might never stop at all. Therefore I think chance of FTBFS is about 45%
This calculation is totally pointless because the loop sleeps for a
fixed 4 seconds each iteration, so a simple counter from 0 to <15 would
have been fine.
date '+%s' (UNIX timestamp) might have been almost sensible.
