The change added a new functional test. As I expected, it failed on "AMD64 Debian root". I expected it because the previously added functional test failed failed on "AMD64 Debian root", I reported the race condition in 2017 and it's still not fixed: bpo-30849.

The new functional test has two race conditions.

I reopen the issue.

== Race condition 1 ==

AMD64 Debian root 3.x:

0:15:05 load avg: 2.58 [137/427/1] test_signal failed (env changed) (1 min 13 sec)
Warning -- Unraisable exception
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/root/buildarea/3.x.angelico-debian-amd64/build/Lib/", line 1067, in _wait_for_tstate_lock
    elif lock.acquire(block, timeout):
OSError: Signal 10 ignored due to race condition

== Race condition 2 ==

By the way, the test also fails when I stress my laptop:
