// See the comment block at the top of the test for a bit more information. The short
// story here is that the RoomDirectory does not exist under matrixChat anymore, or even
// the parentDiv we have access to. Asking React to find the RoomDirectory as a child of
// the document results in it complaining that you didn't give it a component tree to
// search in. When you do get a reference to the component tree based off the document
// root and ask it to search, it races and can't find the component in time. To top it
// all off, MatrixReactTestUtils can't find the element in time either even with a very
// high number of attempts. Assuming we can get a reference to the RoomDirectory in a
// dialog, the rest of the test should be fine.
