I experienced this hang with Linux AMD64.
It occurs in test_send_signal.
It is because signal.SIGINT is not always handled (see #3137).
As a workaround, there's 2 choices: add a delay between Popen and send_signal, or retry SIGINT 2 or 3 times.
Windows should not be affected, because it uses signal SIGTERM in the test.
