I could do that indeed. I'm not sure it would be much better, though, because the lock will still be held and posterior tests may freeze mysteriously.

It always freezes here (with the per-module lock). I guess on modern machines, 0.5s is more than enough to launch a thread and parse a nearly empty Python module.

I should add a comment explaining a purpose of the test, though.
