New submission from STINNER Victor <victor.stinner at haypocalc.com>:

test_multiprocessing segfaults in a loop. The crash occurs in _Condition.release() on waiter.release(), called from Queue._finalize_close(). Possible related changes:

 - a5c8b6ebe895: new sigwait() test using thread (issue #8407)
 - 6d6099f7fe89: add sentinels to multiprocessing (issue #9205)

Example of a crash:

[333/356/1] test_multiprocessing
Fatal Python error: Segmentation fault

Most occured on Queue._finalize_close() -> _Condition.release() -> waiter.release().
