Description Alexey Proskuryakov 2015-08-24 17:28:26 PDT
Some scroll snap tests have become flaky when asynchronous. This is reproducible locally when repeating them many times, e.g. "--repeat 500 -f".

Marked as flaky in r188899.

There is a clear opportunity for a race between the end of regular scroll and the beginning of momentum scroll.

Some potential approaches:

- tell eventSender.callAfterScrollingCompletes whether it needs to wait for momentum scroll;

- this could be automagic, because all scrolls are started via eventSender functions, and we do post the momentum scrolling events before calling eventSender.callAfterScrollingCompletes;

- or it may be possible to have an eventSender function that both finishes regular scroll and starts a momentum one, or some other higher level description of a scroll that we'd use with eventSender. That way, we would keep the knowledge that there is a momentum scroll coming for longer.
