The test_child_terminated_in_stopped_state() test creates a child process which calls ptrace(PTRACE_ME, 0, 0) and then crashs using SIGSEGV. The problem is that even if we read the exit status using os.waitpid() through subprocess, the process remains alive in the "t (tracing stop)" state.

I would prefer to not use ptrace() is an unit test since this API is very low-level and it's hard to use it correctly.

I suggest to either remove the functional test, or to rewrite it as an unit test using mocks to test bpo-29335 without ptrace().
