Running tests during build is only fragile when the tests
(or the code they test) are crap.

A non-buggy test never fails unless the code it tests is buggy,
and many software projects have thousands of tests that work fine.

A testsuite that sometimes fails for no good reason is quite useless.

Are these operations on coll intentionally asynchronous?

If yes, is there any way to wait until the update_db() was successful?

If no, please at least enlarge the sleep time by a factor of 10 to 
ensure that this won't be observed by anyone in practice.
