Workaround Travis timeout for OSX platforms test #7919
About half of CI runs, the OSX Platform specific tests shard times out due to not receiving output within 10 minutes.
While an even better solution would make the problematic tests faster, this workarounds the problem via Travis's
We wait up to 50 minutes. Usually the test only takes about 20 minutes, but it has been seen to run up to 45 minutes so we conservatively allow it to take up to 50 minutes.

This might have been a bad change. I've seen several timeouts of 50 - 60 minutes, which imply to me that the test truly is hanging rather than just taking longer than 10 minutes to print to the screen.
If true, this new timeout makes things worse, because it increases the time it takes to see if the test will fail. It would be better to eagerly fail.
