Hi Dennis,

Well, more than a bug, it’s a consequence of the use of a conservative
garbage collector: the GC is inherently non-deterministic.  The tests
that are failing on your machine are trying to make sure the GC does its
job in a timely fashion, which unfortunately cannot be done reliably.

Sorry for the inconvenience!

I’m closing this bug, but feel free to reopen it if you think there’s
more to be discussed.
