Which timeout values are you talking about?

You seem to think that the problem is that the test is taking too long.
That doesn't seem to be the case to me: the test's purpose is to test
stuff related to timeouts in Symfony's Process component.

What seems to happen here is that the call to start() causes a call to
checkTimeout(), that detects that the process should be timeouted.
So it's either a matter of start() taking too long to start the process,
or of insufficient timer accuracy. Assuming that Process can start a
process in 0.1s might be a bit optimistic.
