I think it is relevant. If run-webkit-tests's timer fires, it tells  
you that DRT has hung. If the watchdog timer fires, it tells you that  
the test has an error which causes notifyDone() never to be called,  
but that DRT is still functioning. The two errors usually have pretty  
different causes.
