I've been fine testing Faye with Cucumber in a single browser session but as soon as one of my features spins up a second browser and starts testing the interaction between the two WebDriver hangs and times out. It's definitely Faye, probably the WebSocket connection, causing the issue. I have not found a work around. Not much information out there about it unfortunately.
