Tor runs Stem's integration test as part of its CI.

It looks liken Stem or Tor hung on a controller test:

No output has been received in the last 10m0s, this potentially indicates a stalled build or something wrong with the build itself.

The build has been terminated


Is this a Stem or a Tor issue?
What can we do to diagnose this issue?
How can we make Stem exit with failure, rather than hanging?
Do we need to collect and show debug logs in Tor's CI?
(We can't show the debug logs in CI unless Stem exits with a failure.)

I've only seen this issue once, so we might need to make changes to Stem, Tor, or CI, then wait for it to happen again.

Hi teor, deduplicating this with #29437. Unfortunately the intermittent nature of this is gonna make it a real pita to troubleshoot. It would be helpful if we add '--log TRACE' to the test arguments so we have more information when this arises, but on the downside that will mean unpleasantly verbose output when troubleshooting other issues...
