This test timed out; either the buildd was too slow/busy, the test has a
race condition, or the library has a race condition.

How fast are your buildds, how many cores do they have, and how much
else is the same machine doing at the same time?

In the debian-experimental git branch I've turned off the timeout (to be
nice to sh4 and Ubuntu), so the only timeout will be the buildds' usual
"n minutes with no stdout/stderr"; so if it's that, it'll be fixed soon.

If it's a race condition, telepathy-glib 0.18 (currently in
experimental, but should probably hit unstable soon) might improve matters.

It might be <https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=45173> (which
was a race condition in that test), but that bug was a response to
139a0f63b6d (fdo#44825, 0.17.4) which isn't in 0.16 either. (It's
possible that the test was always broken and we just didn't catch it
until then, though.)
