In the hope of eventually being able to run tests unattended, I'm
imposing a lot of resource limits on tests now (after I have seen all
kinds of excessive resource usage by broken tests). Among those, there
is a limit on the number of threads that can be executed. I raised the
thread-limit globally, so the number of tests suffering from thread
resource problems should drop significantly.
