Subject atomic tests timing out on Windows

Looks like the two atomic tests, atomic_add.exe and atomic_xchg.exe,
are timing out in some (optimized) MSVC builds on Windows.

seconds (depending on the hardware). Farid, have you seen this in
your manual builds? (The test are important because they exercise
functionality that string depends on for thread safety).

Here are a couple of builds with the timed-out tests:
