Right, regardless of whether or not it is a bug in python, IMO it *is* a bug in the python test suite, since we *expect* buildbots to be long running processes and therefore they are going to get hit by this failure on OSX periodically with a pretty high likelyhood.  Yes it is easily fixable (restart the builder), but it seems to me the test should be fixed somehow instead of putting that burden on the buildbot owner.

A skip on OSX would certainly be the simplest solution, and we could thereby indicate that we consider this behavior to be a bug in OSX.
