Eric Snow: do you think that it could be related to your recent subinterpreter changes please?

That looks similar to other failures due to an issue fixed in a later PR.  It shouldn't be an issue any longer.  I'll double check in the morning.

I'm surprised that we only detect hard crashes only indirectly through the
creation of core dump files... Some tests might be enhanced to raise an
exception at least if the process was killed by a signal, maybe also if the
exit code is non-zero (depending on the test).

We had a similar but different issue in test_io which created a core dump
on a deliberate crash.

At this point I'm not convinced the failure is due to my recent changes.  Regardless, I do agree with you about detecting hard crashes.

Sadly, I'm unable to reproduce the issue on my FreeBSD 11 VM :-(

Oops, I mentioned the wrong bpo in my PRs: the fix was pushed using bpo-30764 identifier :-/

It seems like test_child_terminated_in_stopped_state() of test_subprocess on Python 2.7 fails on some macOS versions, see:

Can someone please try to reproduce the bug? I'm unable to reproduce the bug on Darwin 16.5.0 (macOS Sierra?).
