Windows bash: kill command takes up to 15min to kill process

I am using Windows and different Python version for integration tests.
All my Windows Python builds (Python 2.7, 3.5, 3.6, 3.7 and 3.8) seem to always time out.
After timing the commands, I figured out that the kill command used in Windows takes way too long. Up to 15min to kill the Python process.

The program itself does not intercept signals send to it. It works fine on Ubuntu and MacOS.

@cytopia ,

I have created an issue ticket to report this problem to the appropriate engineering team for further investigation and evaluation: actions/virtual-environments#917

You can follow this issue ticket and add you comments on it.
