Not known.

You could add "-d+2" to see the commands. Although it might print those out
after running so it might not help. And I don't remember at the moment if
there's an option to avoid the output buffering.

No. There is a way to limit the tests run. But it's a positive test, i.e. a
whitelist, not a blacklist (option it --limit-tests=).

Yes. The option is "-lx" where x is max seconds to allow actions to run.
Note, it's a limit on all actions, not just test actions.
