I have the faint memory that we indeed somehow disabled it at least for 
some of the tests in the past, but can't find any relevant code. 
(There's apparently no such command-line parameter for soffice, and the 
code at extensions/source/update/check/updatecheckjob.cxx also does not 
check any environment variable or similar.)
