android – Espresso test fails after successful click and blocking for 60 seconds-ThrowExceptions

Exception or error:

I have tried using Espresso testing framework and wrote a simple test.

Nothing fancy there, just this code:

onView(withId(R.id.login_button_stub)).perform(click());

Test runs fine on a Nexus 5 device and Genymotion with Android 5.0, but fails on Android Emulator 4.x, 5.0, Genymotion 2.3, 4.x and LG G2 with Android 4.x.

On all these devices/emulators/simulators, the button is clicked and its action executed (going to another screen in my case). The problem is it blocks in perform on some devices. This ends with a nice exception after 60 seconds:

android.support.test.espresso.PerformException: Error performing 'single click' on view 'with id: com.vielengames.mock:id/login_button_stub'.
    ...
    Caused by: android.support.test.espresso.AppNotIdleException: Looped for 3544 iterations over 60 SECONDS. The following Idle Conditions failed .
    ...

Note that there is no info about what conditions failed. Looking at Espresso source code, there should be a comma-separated list of issues.

Here is the full code: TestCase.java.

and full stacktrace:

How to solve:

It was a bug in my app code, where SwipeRefreshLayout animated itself indefinitely. Due to a bug in this component, the refresh state was not even showing.
