That sounds like something is blocking the wpa_supplicant process for
more than 15 seconds. That sounds like a pretty serious bug and I'd
rather fix that than hide it with this type of increase.

For some reason, I cannot reproduce this, though. I'm using the current
wireless-testing.git snapshot for most of the test runs and no sign of
such timeouts.
