XCode Beach Ball Lock Up While Running Unit Tests

I downloaded the iphone unit test calculator example project, iPhoneUnitTests. I followed the included directions, and my XCode locked up with a beach ball. I'm running OS X 10.6 and XCode 3.2. According to this article, there is a problem with XCode's regex parsing of the test completion dates for GMT-5:00. Since I'm in Central Daylight time, I am affected. The simple solution is to switch your time zone to Pacific.
