There is a timeout in Dart already.

That would be the vtkWin32VideoSource. It is automatically built by
CMake if VFW32.LIB (Video-for-Windows) is found on the system.
The two possible fixes are
1) set the VTK_USE_VIDEO_FOR_WINDOWS default to OFF in CMakeLists.txt
2) fix vtkWin32VideoSource.cxx to generate a VTK error instead of
displaying a MessageBox
3) make sure that the method that generates the error isn't called
I think that (2) is the best option, so I'll try to get a patch done
Also, perhaps the testing should have a timeout built
it so that if a test doesn't complete in e.g. 15 minutes then the
offending process is terminated. I don't think that it would
be easy to add this feature to Dart, but it would improve the
robustness of the tests.
