This cause of failure PR 17010 was due to change of start methods as follows:
Changed in version 3.8: On macOS, the spawn start method is now the default. The fork start method should be considered unsafe as it can lead to crashes of the subprocess. See bpo-33725.

So I updated the test through PR 17154 and I check that my local mac machine works well. (I did not check it on my local mac machine when I submitted PR 17010 since open description lock was Linux feature, this was my mistake)

And thanks to the tip from Michael Felt, I update the test to skip on the AIX machine. So I expect that when PR 17154 is landed, everything will go well.
