If it hasn't yet started, the test code thinks it must have completed, and continues to the
next steps in the tests.

We regularly ship with known problems. Every ticket in JIRA that is open at he point of release
would be an example of this. I don't have the insight to know if this particular issue is
a show stopper or not. If the community think it's fine as is, let's just backport this fix
for the 1.1 and 0.11.2 releases.
