Results of my simple-minded strategy (see r80033-4, r80037, r80042, r80045, r80047-51):

test_execvpe_with_bad_program in ExecTests by itself is enough to trigger the signal 32 error (in combination with test_wait3).  See:


If just this single test is disabled and all other tests in test_os are allowed to run, there's no problem (at least with test_wait3;  (I haven't tried re-enabling *all* other tests in the test suite yet).  See:
