If mysql-test-run.pl fails to start instance manager the holw test suite run will be aborted with error "failed to start im in 30 seconds".

How to repeat:
I belive we saw the above problem when running on a mcahine with port conflicts for im. But is should be possible to repeat by mocifying the script a little to make im start fail.

Suggested fix:
The script should continue but mark the test as failed, printing a warning about the failure to start im in 30 secs.

  Fix for BUG#22074: mysql-test-run.pl abort test run if it fails
  to start instance manager.
  The problem was that if IM failed to start, test suite aborts.
  The fix is to mark current test as failed, and continue running
  test suite.
  The fix affects only test suite.
