I had no idea this issue was so widespread until I noticed Berlins
builders hit it more often than not.  I have not been able to reproduce
these failures on my machines.  So it was kind of a panic reaction,
being the person responsible for running these tests and all.

Looking further into the changes between 10.1.37 and 10.1.38, I notice
the 'tokudb.*' tests were enabled:


Watching the build on Berlin in real time, I also see that the test
output grind nearly to a halt while running those.
'tokudb.hotindex-insert-2' took 2700439 milliseconds, or 45 minutes, if
I'm reading the test output correctly.

The default test case timeout is 40 minutes (as specified in the Guix
package), but I'm using 80 for this build (60 was insufficient).

I suspect the problem is that the 'tokudb.*' tests put a lot of strain
on the file system, which causes these other tests to fail.  It's
interesting that disabling parallel build was insufficient though.
