The usual tests when calling "make" (or "make check" from Emacs' top
directory) do not run such long. They suppress all tests marked as

When you call "make filenotify-tests" it is intended to run all tests,
including the expensive ones. If you want to suppress expensive tests as
well, call "make filenotify-tests SELECTOR='$(SELECTOR_DEFAULT)'". Note,
that you don't need the "lisp/" prefix.

See test/README for further discussion.

Best regards, Michael.
