I have no idea :-/

OK, so it is not crazy that the Gitlab instances are not able to build
this. So, I'd say we need to:

 - In the short term, disable this test from the Gitlab testing. Do you
   think you could look into this ?

 - In the mid/long term, have our own Gitlab instances, that have more
   horsepower and no limit in the duration of jobs.

Best regards,

Thomas
