I'm trying to run package tests locally and gtest is reporting test failures due to timeout. For example:

0% tests passed, 1 tests failed out of 1

Label Time Summary:
gtest    =  60.03 sec*proc (1 test)

Total Test time (real) =  60.03 sec

The following tests FAILED:
          1 - test_tf2_geometry_msgs (Timeout)
Errors while running CTest

--- stderr: tf2_geometry_msgs

Finished <<< tf2_geometry_msgs [1min 0s]        [ with test failures ]

Summary: 1 package finished [1min 0s]
  1 package had stderr output: tf2_geometry_msgs
  1 package had test failures: tf2_geometry_msgs

If I manually run the run_test.py testing command printed above or the built test executable directly it runs and finishes instantly, as expected. Why is this timeout error happening when using colcon test?
