New submission from James G. sack (jim) <jgsack at users.sourceforge.net>:

With -r 76870, on Fedora 11, amd x80_64, regrtest of test_format fails 
when the -j  option is combined with the -v option. It happens whether 
testing everything or just the one test.

  ./python -Ebb Lib/test/regrtest -j3 -vv 
  ./python -Ebb Lib/test/regrtest -j3 -vv test_format
