Even better is to use the SLEEP variables instead of hard coded values. 
Then they can be overridden in the test environment if necessary for 
specific VMs.

At the moment we have:

quanah@ub16:~/git/openldap/openldap-head/tests/scripts$ grep SLEEP 

It may be useful to add things like SLEEP10, SLEEP20, etc, and rebase tests 
off of that.  1/7/15 seem rather odd increments (no pun intended!).
