I'd go one step further:
If you add any test that isn't a true "unit" test (ie it relies on any
mulithreading, either explicitly or by using miniclusters, etc), you
should add a timeout. Even if it has to be conservative (like 5
minutes on a test that you expect only runs 10 seconds), it seems
better than waiting for it to timeout and then later having to go back
and add one.
