[Seaside] WebTester Locator Argument Accessor

Yes, Andrei's solution gives me the same behavior I was getting before.

i.e. If I have a link that does some jquery, and makes a div appear.

jqueryLink click.
self pause: '5000'.
self assert: (self divByXPath: '//div...' ) isPresent.

Seems the pause is actually getting triggered before the jquery click has a
chance to change the dom. So the click happens, there is a pause, the div
appears and the assert is called too quickly to find it ( I think ).

Indeed, my problem really boils down to the default timeout value slowing
down my test suite, so I think calling selenium setTimeout is the right
approach. Doing that with a significantly reduced value seems to be doing
the trick.

Thanks all,
