Bug#907493: ghostscript causes multiple autopkgtests to time out

Hi Jonas, all,

Does ghostscript and/or cups do anything with ssl? I can't find it in
the (build) depends, nor in the build log, but somehow, somewhere the
"topsecret.pdf" name and other tests that time out due to it triggered
something in my mind. This is not unlikely to be a red haring, but here
it goes.

Openssl in unstable is updated some time ago to upstream version 1.1.1.
which contains:
TLS 1.3 has lots of changes that might cause issues. See
https://wiki.openssl.org/index.php/TLS1.3 for more information.

One of those changes may cause time out:

SSL_MODE_AUTO_RETRY is enabled by default. Applications that use
blocking I/O in combination with something like select() or poll() will
hang. This can be turned off again using SSL_CTX_clear_mode().
Many applications do not properly handle non-application data records,
and TLS 1.3 sends more of such records. Setting SSL_MODE_AUTO_RETRY
works around the problems in those applications, but can also break
some. It's recommended to read the manpages about SSL_read(),
SSL_write(), SSL_get_error(), SSL_shutdown(), SSL_CTX_set_mode() and
SSL_CTX_set_read_ahead() again.

If this would be true, than building the package in testing as opposed
to unstable should not have the time out issue. I think that is
something that could be tested.
