So, I was finally able to replicate a failure in test_still_running locally, it required using a rather ridiculous number of parallel workers:

$ ./python -m test test__xxsubinterpreters -j200 -F
Exception in thread Thread-7:
Traceback (most recent call last):

94 tests OK.

1 test failed:

Total duration: 1 min 49 sec
Tests result: FAILURE

OS: Arch Linux x86_64
Kernel: 5.3.11
CPU: Intel i5-4460

I was able to consistently reproduce the above failure using 200 parallel workers, even without `-f`. 

I have a few different theories that I'd like to test for fixing the failure, I'll report back if any of them yield positive results.
