Auto merge of #18853 - asajeffrey:constellation-chaos-monkey-dont-kil…

…l-pending-pipelines, r=jdm

Random pipeline closure is less likely to kill pending pipelines.

<!-- Please describe your changes on the following line: -->

Make it less likely for pending pipelines to be randomly killed. Pending pipelines send more messages to the constellation, so at the moment we're skewing to killing pipelines early in their lifetimes.

<!-- Thank you for contributing to Servo! Please replace each `[ ]` by `[X]` when the step is complete, and replace `__` with appropriate data: -->
- [X] `./mach build -d` does not report any errors
- [X] `./mach test-tidy` does not report any errors
- [X] These changes fix #18852
- [X] These changes do not require tests because it's fixing test infrastructure

<!-- Also, please make sure that "Allow edits from maintainers" checkbox is checked, so that we can help you if you get stuck somewhere along the way.-->

<!-- Pull requests that do not address these steps are welcome, but they will require additional verification as part of the review process. -->
