Testcases derived from BaseServerTestCase will launch a server process in a separate thread. This server will shut itself down after handling a specified number of requests. If the test case fails before performing enough requests, the server thread will continue to wait indefinitely.

Fix for issue 14001 removed timeout from the wait on server thread, so now if a test fails, it will hang forever.

To reproduce: put self.assertTrue(False) at start of any testcase.

This matters in two cases:
1. If a testcase performs more than one request, an assertion failure on the first one will freeze the rest
2. If you make a mistake when writing a testcase, the test will hang instead of telling you that you did something wrong, and with no indication of what caused the problem (because your testcase won't be part of the backtrace when you break the wait)
