Sorry for my late reply. Thanks.

I have: bash --version
GNU bash, version 3.1.17(1)-release (x86_64-suse-linux)

I was using this:
for i in $( seq 1000 ) ; do
done | grep -v PASS
Without the patches, I got:
* 153 FAILures.
With the patches, I get:
timeout-group: skipped test: timeout.cmd didn't receive a signal until after
timeout-group: skipped test: timeout returned 142. SIGALRM not handled?
Does this help?
If you need access to that machine, it's possible but not easy.
Have a nice day,
