I'm opening a bug to track this issue because, even though it was given
back and built successfully, it may recur in future, and it suggests a
bug somewhere that we'd like to fix.

I couldn't reproduce it yet either.  But I think we have a race
condition somewhere, perhaps in pspp, another library, the test, or even
the test framework.

I'll note that on the kfreebsd buildds the testsuite runs with -j2
