I can't pinpoint the exact causes for each individual test failure. I assumed that they are caused by threading/signal issues, because the tests pass when Python is compiled --without-threads.

But here's a list of possible culprits for future reference:

[pthread's execve(2) breaks close(2)]

[SIGCHLD handler is called at bad timing when linked to libpthread]

[pthread: 100% CPU usage after execv]

[pthread: file descriptors are "pseudo-blocking"]

[test_siginterrupt_off broken by libpthread's internal hooking of signals]
[test_itimer_prof broken by libpthread's internal use of SIGPROF]
