I haven't had a chance to investigate much further yet, but if I run
make check under gdb and hit Ctrl-C while popen.test is hung, there
are two threads that were running.  The first thread's backtrace looks
like this:

#0  0xffffe410 in __kernel_vsyscall ()
#1  0x40281f41 in select () from /lib/tls/i686/cmov/
#2  0x400b481c in scm_std_select (nfds=29, readfds=0xbfa8621c, writefds=0x0, 
    exceptfds=0x0, timeout=0x0) at threads.c:1363

#7  0x4005ad54 in ceval (x=0x404, env=0x40647188) at eval.c:4218

and the second thread's backtrace looks like this:

#0  0xffffe410 in __kernel_vsyscall ()
#1  0x401b681b in __read_nocancel () from /lib/tls/i686/cmov/
