Build get stuck when "dotnet test" fails

I've just created a new project with a short and simple config. The problem is that when "dotnet test" fails, the build keeps waiting for something and it ends up failing due to timeout after an hour.
This is the project

This is the exported yml

version: 1.0.{build}
  - master
image: Previous Visual Studio 2017
- ps: >-
    dotnet restore .\lib\PuppeteerSharp.sln

    Import-Module WebAdministration

    New-SelfSignedCertificate -Subject "puppeteer" -FriendlyName "Puppeteer" -CertStoreLocation "cert:\LocalMachine\My"

    Get-ChildItem -Path cert:\LocalMachine\my | where { $_.subject -eq "CN=puppeteer" } | Export-Certificate -FilePath C:\projects\puppeteer-sharp\lib\PuppeteerSharp.TestServer\testCert.cer
  project: .\lib\PuppeteerSharp.sln
  publish_nuget: true
  include_nuget_references: true
  verbosity: minimal
    - '*PuppeteerSharp.Tests*'

    I've just blocked the RDP and dotnet test is working as expected there

    Hi Darío,

    I see you workaround the issue with adding -p:ParallelizeTestCollections=false. Can you share more details about your investigation? Do you believe that we should add this option if we see that test is xUnit?

    I've got that from a StackOverflow post but no joy, it is still stuck.

    It could be some child process spawned during the tests and preventing parent from existing. Could it be the case?

    I'm creating a child process, and I'm killing it, I added some logs to verify that, but in the Remote desktop is working.

    I'll try removing that process just as a test.

    If it is the process, how can I start a process (a kestrel web server) from AppVeyor without locking the thread? Because the kestrel server will lock the terminal.

    You can use Start-job PowerShell command.
