I did some digging and here is what I uncovered:

1. If I remove test.2 from .SECONDARY, make does not hang.
2. If I change "%.3 : | %.2" to "%.3 : %.2", make does not hang.
3. If I replace the "%.3 : | %.2" rule with the equivalent normal rule,
   make does not hang.
4. Adding .SECONDEXPANSION: does not change anything.

I did some inspecting in the implicit rules area and it seems that
everything is working properly there, i.e., in the instantiation of
the "%.3 : | %.2" rule, test.2 has the intermediate, secondary and
ignore_mtime flags set, as expected.
