Description Alexey Proskuryakov 2015-09-11 16:53:17 PDT
http/tests/xmlhttprequest/timeout/xmlhttprequest-timeout-overridesexpires.html flakily fails on slower bots:


-PASS XHR2 Timeout Property Tests 
-PASS XHR2 Timeout Property Tests 1 
+FAIL XHR2 Timeout Property Tests assert_equals: timeout set to expiring value after load fires, original timeout at 1000, reset at 800 to 200 expected "load" but got "timeout"(stack: assert@
This is not very recent, it happened on August 22nd (and possibly before that).

Marked as flaky in r189638.

Will have a look at it, probably next week.

FWIW, the timeouts of the corresponding W3C tests got increased 5x, probably for similar reasons (https://github.com/w3c/web-platform-tests/commit/b74228224b0411069050cb81b3d74fc205c59339).

I guess doing so might increase the risk of getting timeouting tests for all xmlhttprequest/timeout tests if not updating TestExpectations.
We might want to try increasing timeouts, by 2x or 3x.
Comment 3 youenn fablet 2016-01-04 00:52:49 PST
WebKit xmlhttprequest-timeout-overridesexpires.html was removed in favor of WPT version which is not flaky (increased timeouts).
