test fails in yast2_lang
openQA test in scenario opensuse-Tumbleweed-DVD-x86_64-yast2_gui@64bit fails in
Fails since (at least) Build 20171006
Last good: 20171005 (or more recent)
Always latest result in this scenario: latest
It seemd the machine 'stalled' somehow completely. yast2 does not start, the collection of debug logs fails at the point it calls 'rpmverify' and all future commands simply are ignored

Machine is not really stalled, we can even see that time is updated. Increasing timeout to 180 for module to start seems to help. I've added TIMEOUT_SCALE variable to the test suite on o3 to see if it helps. I could reproduce the issue in 5 out of 6 runs locally. With increased timeout in 5 runs test module haven't failed even once. Investigating if anything else can be improved.

One of our hypothesis is that if btrfs balance is triggered, SUT has significant performance degradation. I was able to replicate issue when set RAM to 512 on VM, started balancing btrfs and then tried to run yast module. SUT becomes very slow and it took up to few minutes to start yast control center. Before balancing was triggered, gui shows up immediately. In the serial output we see that for the failed runs balancing is triggered.
