The 4h cap was kept so that multiple people could have a chance to debug
their test failures on the same day. Pushing the cap to 8h means that if
you don't have a machine to loan when you start work one will not be
available until the next day. At this point, we'll not be increasing the
timeout. So far, we've had one person actually hit this. I'd like to see
more data points before we make an application level change.
