I think the issue is gdk-pixbuf's stress tests try to use a lot of
memory and sometimes can run too long without any output.  There is
an 'max-silent-time' option in guix can be used to set the 3600s limit,
but it may be not what we need here ;-)

gdk-pixbuf is used by gtk+, and the default emacs is compiled with gtk+
GUI.  There is 'emacs-no-x' with ncurses UI which don't need it.
