That was a run with all faulthandler references removed from

But as I said in my previous mail, I also did a run using e91ad9669c08
but without compiling and linking faulthandler, so that _PyFaulthandler_Init()
wouldn't be called. This had the same result, so faulthandler is _not_ the cause
of this bug.

If it were that easy! I can't isolate the bug. The only way I can reproduce it
is by running the whole test suite with various random seeds. Then it takes
about 6 hours until the crash occurs in one of those tests.

The whole test suite takes about 24 hours.

I could try to install libc-dbg though.
