I can't speak for other OSs, but in QNX it would be simple. A
supervisory process running in parallel with the test process, and at a
very high priority, can monitor execution (say every second) and 'kill'
it in the event of a time overrun.
It would make even more sense if it was the monitor process that
launched the test process.
Just a thought...
