=> see the traceback below.

I'm not sure that it's an issue with Python. It seems like the system was way too loaded: system load around 13.29 for 2 CPUs. I know that this buildbot worker is super slow.

The main regrtest process is supposed to write an update every 30 seconds. Timeout after 5 minutes means that the main process was either *very very slow*, or that the _get_result() method was blocked because of a real bug. I'm surprised since the code works well on all other workers. If it's a bug, one explanation would be that it's a race condition which trigger only under very precise timings.

In the main thread of the main process, the code is stuck on:

   self.output.get(timeout=30)

where self.output is a queue.Queue() instance. This line should not take longer than 30 seconds, except if the system is *really* slow.

Maybe that day, the poor AMD64 FreeBSD CURRENT Shared 3.8 was just too slow?

It's not the first time that I see this issue. In bpo-37531, it already failed on the same buildbot worker (koobs-freebsd-current):
https://bugs.python.org/issue37531#msg354078

When it failed, the main regrtest process used a timeout of 60 seconds. I changed this timeout to 5 minutes in commit 0ec618af98ac250a91ee9c91f8569e6df6772758.

5 minutes is already quite big. It means that the system failed to give back the CPU to regrtest main process in 5 minutes, whereas it should get the CPU after 30 seconds.
