Is this test summary good or bad?

What ends up happening is this:

28683  p2  S      0:00.11 ../../timeout/timeout 300 cd ./typecheck/ 
should_compile && '/Users/joelr/work/Haskell/ghc/compiler/stage2/ghc- 
inplace' -no-recomp -dcore-lint -dcmm-lint -Di386_apple_darwin -c  
tc033.hs   -fno-warn-incomplete-patterns >tc033.comp.stderr 2>&1

29125  p2  R      1:53.48 ../../timeout/timeout 300 cd ./typecheck/ 
should_fail && '/Users/joelr/work/Haskell/ghc/compiler/stage2/ghc- 
inplace' -no-recomp -dcore-lint -dcmm-lint -Di386_apple_darwin -c  
tcfail011.hs    >tcfail011.comp.stderr 2>&1

Now, these things have been running there forever and I'm not even  
sure it's a Haskell problem. I suppose the test harness should have  
terminated the test after 300 seconds but didn't.

If I try to re-run the first process by hand it finishes instantly.  
If I try to re-run the whole thing as above, putting everything after  
300 in double quotes it also finishes instantly.
