[New-bugs-announce] [issue6462] bsddb3 intermittent test failures

New submission from R. David Murray <rdmurray at bitdance.com>:

The buildbots periodically report failures in the bsddb3 test suite. 
These are not reproducible and presumably are timing-based.  It would be
best if the tests could be made to pass consistently, to make the
buildbot output more useful.

Here is one such failure that I see on a semi-regular basis on trunk
(this happens in my own tests runs as well, also not consistently):

Berkeley DB 4.7.25: (June 30, 2009)
Test path prefix:  /tmp/z-test_bsddb3-11362
test test_bsddb3 failed -- Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/rdmurray/python/trunk/Lib/bsddb/test/test_replication.py",
line 134, in test01_basic_replication
AssertionError: False is not True

I will add others here as I capture examples.
