it seems that test_gdb fails on armv7hl on Fedora 19 and 20 [1] (I'm also tracking my notes of the bug there). Basically, the problem seems to come down to PyObjectPtr.subclass_from_type (file returning different values for members of the stack trace (compared to successful builds - see [3] for x86_64 successful build and [4] for armv7hl failed build).
The two failed tests fail with:

FAIL: test_up_at_top (test.test_gdb.StackNavigationTests)
Verify handling of "py-up" at the top of the stack
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/builddir/build/BUILD/Python-3.Lib/test/", line 678, in test_up_at_top
    cmds_after_breakpoint=['py-up'] * 4)
  File "/builddir/build/BUILD/Python-3.Lib/test/", line 213, in get_stack_trace
    self.assertEqual(err, '')
AssertionError: "Python Exception <class '__main__.NullPyObjectPtr'> <__main__.PyFrameObjectPtr  [truncated]... != ''

FAIL: test_threads (test.test_gdb.PyBtTests)

  File "/builddir/build/BUILD/Python-3.Lib/test/", line 213, in get_stack_trace
    self.assertEqual(err, '')
AssertionError: "Python Exception <class 'gdb.error'> There is no member named co_name.: \nError [truncated]... != ''
- Python Exception <class 'gdb.error'> There is no member named co_name.: 
- Error occurred in Python command: There is no member named co_name.

The whole build log is accessible at [2]. Any clues would be appreciated. Thanks.

This may also be related to the tests failing on official buildbots as mentioned in [1], although the error messages look different. However both of these issues seem to be a memory corruption problem, as one of the frames in stack trace (the one that fails the tests for me) has ob_refcnt < 0 and ob_type = 0x26000000, (corresponds to tuple if I'm not mistaken) and all sorts of other weird values.

Python 3.4 and Fedora 20 are no longer maintained. See bpo-40746 for a more recent test_gdb issue on armv7l.
