The issue in question was noted on #kdevelop (prior to the whole Freenode
meltdown) on a few occasions.

I'm afraid I only have records of the hung test processes (and the gdb
processes above them using an entire CPU core indefinitely each).
jenkins 60635 0.0 0.0 12120 2256 0 TXs+ 02:44 0:00.00
jenkins 74167 0.0 0.0 12120 2260 1 TXs+ 02:55 0:00.00
Hopefully that is enough to identify the tests that are broken?
