Terry, b10a312f6d00 appears to fix most of the issue, that is, if I insert a deliberate failure into another IDLE test and use -w without -j, the four repeatable errors I identified above no longer occur.  Thanks.  However, the fifth, timing-dependent error still occurs during the -w rerun perhaps ever 5th run or so.  It might be worth pursuing to help squash other intermittent results:
