This is either a race in the test or a bug in timeout, neither of which I can
Your system is running 2.6.30-2-686 SMP
Does this fail all the time?
(cd tests && make check TESTS=misc/timeout-group VERBOSE=yes)
Does it fail if you force bash?
(cd tests && make check TESTS=misc/timeout-group VERBOSE=yes SHELL=/bin/bash)
If you change timeout.c to fprintf(stderr) that the first
send_sig (monitored_pid) call is made, does that happen in the failing case?
As an outside guess, maybe timer_create() causes threads to
be created on your system, which may in turn cause signal issues?
Does the failure still happen if you s/HAVE_TIMER_SETTIME/0/ in timeout.c?
