I've had a chance to do some testing and it _is_ related to the itimer
tests (in test_wait4).

This is with r66550:

$ ./python -E -tt ./Lib/test/regrtest.py -l -v test_wait4 test_signal

ok

OK
1 test OK.

Noting the interprocess signal test failure, I tried deactivating it and
the itimer tests still go off into the never never (using all available
CPU cycles too).
