Bug Description

As seen in <https://lpbuildbot.canonical.com/builders/lucid_lp/builds/1335/steps/shell_6/logs/stdio> (sometimes hangs, try adding random query strings to get it to not hang), some testrunner subprocess failures are not handled correctly by the master process. In this case test_import_bzr (now disabled) caused the testrunner to hang and be killed. The master said:

**********************************************************************
Could not communicate with subprocess
**********************************************************************

but then continued on to say

Total: 15537 tests, 0 failures, 0 errors in 246 minutes 57.383 seconds.

Successfully ran all tests.
program finished with exit code 0

This was fixed in zope.testrunner 4.4.0 (https://github.com/zopefoundation/zope.testrunner/issues/5), so we'll pick that up when we finally upgrade.
