I expect testing.T.FailNow() to cleanly fail a test, including terminating any running
goroutines, and the main routine if it was called in a goroutine.
Running `go test` with the attached file, I expect to see "I'm about to fail",
followed by the test cleanly failing.
Instead I see:
$ go test
I'm about to fail
I'm about to loop forever
and the process never terminates.
This also happens if the infinite loop is in the main thread.
If rather than looping forever, a channel is being waited on, I get a deadlock panic.
If I remove the time.Sleep from the test, the test will pass, and then loop forever!
