  I mentioned the possibility at our PythonLabs meeting today that
this may be related; when I observed problems with test_fork1, it was
on an SMP linux box running Mandrake 7.0 with the stock SMP kernel.  I
have *not* seen the problem pop up on the uniprocessor I have now.
  I think Barry may have access to an SMP Sparc machine; if so, we'll
be checking it out there.
