Comment(by lsansonetti@…):

 I think case 3 is unfixable unless we modify the way {{{1+1 while true}}}
 is compiled. There is no way to "kill" this expression since it never
 enters a pthread cancelation point. So in the current context,
 Thread#raise cannot be deterministic in MacRuby. I am not sure this is
 important (I think Thread#raise should never be used anyways).

 If we can make timeout.rb work for most of the case (at least not crash)
 it's good enough for now, I think.
