Description joerg.skottke 2007-12-18 13:27:31 UTC
When the testtool runs into a server timeout the test is usually aborted.
In most cases the office terminates (crashes) which allows the testtool to recover.
But in some cases the office just hangs for an infinite time and needs to be
killed externally.

In case of a server timeout the Testtool should execute a "pkill -9 soffice.bin"
(on UNIX(like) platforms and the equivalent on Windows) after a period of time -
maybe some 5-10 seconds. 
This should be an optional feature (Checkbox on options page) and it should be
available only if the system provides the capability. This makes installing a
"kill" tool on Windows an optional feature, as not everyone has such a command
line tool.

This is done by our TestLauncher anyway, but if the timings in the database are
incorrect it might take considerable time before the test continues, wasting
lots of time.
