That's possible.

I suspect it's related to test_gil itself. Hash providers don't release the GIL for inputs < 2048 bytes. Hashing of small inputs is faster than releasing and re-acquiring the GIL. For inputs >= 2048 hashlib creates a per-object lock and release the GIL while holding the internal lock. The test case verifies that hashlib works correctly for larger inputs that release the GIL.
