The -w option of regrtest (python -m test) re-run failed tests in verbose in the current process. Problem: if the test does crash, regrtest doesn't re-run following tests, it doesn't write the final tests result (like failing tests, total duration, etc.).

To make regrtest tolerant to such crashes, re-run tests should be run in verbose mode. The only constraint is to disable buffering on stdout and stderr to make sure that stdout and stderr order is kept in pipes. Or maybe stderr should be redirected to stdout to avoid ordering issue?
