Here is what faulthandler reports when I trigger it as Python is locked in test_socket:

[108/349] test_socket
Traceback (most recent call first):
  File "/san_cis/home/cis/.buildbot/python-aix6/3.x.phenix.xlc/build/Lib/test/", line 30 in f
""" (sic)

It is coherent with what truss tells:
_getpid()                                       = 1474634
_select(0, 0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x317535F0) = 0
_getpid()                                       = 1474634
_select(0, 0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x315E35F0) = 0

And we can find this comment in the file:
# waitpid() shouldn't hang, but some of the buildbots seem to hang
# in the forking tests.  This is an attempt to fix the problem.
