Thanks for the report.  This is a different type of failure than the
last one, I'm glad.  It is of the kind of the lost race inherent and
unavoidable in the test: trying to find out whether parallel execution
really is faster than sequential, is not deterministically possible
on non-real-time systems.

Was the system very loaded at the time?  Note I'm not suggesting to
make it less so; au contraire, this test part should either be disabled
or made even less prone to failure in that case.  This is the first such
failure in surely a lot of test runs.
