It sounds like the changes I made to TestScript.in to create a "killer
process" to kill off long-running tests.  I guess I'm doing something
non-portable.  :-(

Does anybody have an idea what I did wrong?  When a test completes, it
should kill off the "killer process".  My guess is that isn't happening.

I've got a really old NetBSD box at home -- I'll do some experiments
when I get some time.
