genkey1024.test hanging on low-entropy systems

hi GnuPG folks--

When i "make check", it looks to me like genkey1024.test is hanging on
low-entropy systems while executing:

  ../../g10/gpg2 --no-permission-warning --quiet --batch --gen-key

should the tests use --debug-quick-random to avoid a hang?  Is there any
reason that we should need to use strong entropy during the make check
