Some unit tests are skipped/not finished

I have strange results with unit tests. Since several days, some tests seems to be skipped. I used to have at least 500 tests running after each build and now I have only around 200 tests. It seems that a specific library is not completely finished. I have made some changes to this library several days ago, but I made only improvement to reduce execution time. I haven't any problem running all tests on my computer and I have checked everything before committing my code.

Here is the build where all tests run correctly : You can see that 528 tests passed and if you look at the log every tests has finished.

Here is the build where tests start to behave strangely : You can see that only 195 tests passed instead of 528. And 195 is not fixed, sometimes it's 205, 219,... For whatever reason some tests seems to be skipped or not finished. If you look at the log you can see that some test library has not finished.

This problem is giving me incorrect and erratic code coverage results since the number of tests runned is always different.

    I had investigate and if I look at the unit tests result page, I can see that some unit tests are not green but yellow and blinking like if they are still running. But depending on the build, it's not always the same tests.

    I'm having the same/similar issue.
    My build was successful and the log states no failed or skipped tests but when going to the Tests tab on the AppVeyor website some are marked yellow.
    Also, no duration is shown for those tests.

    I can see that a fix has been provided the 20th March for the bug #1401. But I still have problems with unit tests, some are stuck and they are never finished (
