The tests should be extremely fast, there is no need to let them run. One 
thing you could do is pick one of those 2 tests (the files are in 
tests/cxx/) and reduce it as much as you can while still exhibiting the 
issue (they are really lists of tests pasted together in a single file, so 
they should be easy to reduce).

The most likely reason for the issue is a compiler bug.
