New submission from Jason R. Coombs <jaraco at jaraco.com>:

In testing issue6727, I added a test (http://hg.python.org/cpython/rev/afe67ea94bc6) to the default branch. The test passes on Windows, but fails on some of the Unix buildbots. Here's a quick breakdown of where it's passing and failing:

 x86 Gentoo 3.x
 x86 Gentoo Non-Debug 3.x
 x86 Ubuntu Shared 3.x
 AMD64 FreeBSD 9.0 3.x
 x86 debian parallel 3.x
 x86 RHEL 6 3.x
 ARM Ubuntu 3.x
 x86 Solaris 11 3.x
 AMD64 Gentoo Wide 3.x
 AMD64 Ubuntu LTS 3.x
 AMD64 OpenIndiana 3.x
 AMD64 Fedora without threads 3.x
 AMD64 Ubuntu LTS bigmem 3.x
 x86 Tiger 3.x
 x86 OpenIndiana 3.x
 x86 FreeBSD 7.2 3.x
 x86 FreeBSD 6.4 3.x

As far as I can tell, the failures don't seem to have an obvious correlation. I will be disabling this test for non-Windows boxes, but it's probably worth tracking down why the test is failing.

I should also note that this test is included in Python 2.7 and does not fail on the Unix.
