It executes the thread-related primitives by launching one or more
threads in each test.

Maybe.  I don't see anything like that, the stack_pos address remains
almost fixed here.  I think what you see means the threads created by
the tests don't exit, so the following tests create threads with stack
space higher and higher in the address space.

Does the problem go away if you insert at the beginning of each test a
loop like this:

  (while (> (length (all-threads)) 1)
    (sleep-for 0.1))

If this doesn't help, we will have to look at the other threads in a
debugger, to see where they are stuck, which prevents them from
