Thanks for the report.  That particular test is known

In my case, the only load was the build-job ;-)

 It may be a bug in bash, rather than in autoconf.
We'd welcome more help in diagnosing the root cause
of the race, and any ideas in making the test (or even
autotest itself) more robust in the face of the race
that is being triggered.

That said, a failure of test 193 is not fatal to the
