It sounds like we timing out based on the whole test class, not the individual tests? If you're worried about test failures not hanging up the test suite the you really want to do the latter.
These are all tests that contain 5 or more independent tests. That's probably why they are taking so long to run.
I don't object to having fairly long backstop timeouts, though I agree with Pavel that we should choose something reasonable based on the slowest running tests just so some single error doesn't cause test runs to just never complete, making analysis harder.
