Hello Rob,

The test fails with 2.2.4+1-1 on amd64 as well:


It's really tricky to get it to fail predictably, but you can even your
odds by testing only asyncs.test and gc.test:

 apt-get source guile-2.2
 cd guile-2.2-2.2.4+1
 dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc
 mkdir test-suite/async-tests
 cp test-suite/tests/{asyncs,gc}.test test-suite/async-tests/
 meta/guile --debug -L $PWD/test-suite --no-auto-compile \
   -e main -s $PWD/test-suite/guile-test \
   --test-suite $PWD/test-suite/async-tests \
   --log-file check-guile-async.log

Try the last command around a dozen times and it'll fail eventually.

I didn't get further with debugging than determining that something
probably goes wrong in the interaction between queue_after_gc_hook(),
scm_i_async_push() and scm_i_async_pop(). Every time there was a
failure, this condition was false (the cdr was set to empty list):

  if (scm_is_false (SCM_CDR (after_gc_async_cell)))
      SCM_SETCDR (after_gc_async_cell, t->pending_asyncs);
      t->pending_asyncs = after_gc_async_cell;
