That's your incorrect assumption; you can stop reactors.
reactor.crash(). Usually one does this from some callback within their
test. I've written tests with both iterate() and run()/crash(); the
latter is usually more natural to me. I don't remember enough right now
to try to make a blanket assertion about which one is better, though
(maybe I should write more tests again ;).
