[Python-Dev] bsddb3 test hang

I just did a fresh cvs up, configure, build and am running the test
suite with TESTOPTS='-u all -v'.  It looks like I'm getting a hang in
test_bsddb3 on RH9.  Running test_bsddb3 alone works just fine.

The hang happens at:

test02_SimpleLocks (bsddb.test.test_thread.BTreeSimpleThreaded) ... ok

So I don't know if it's this test or the next one.  I don't have time at
the moment to dig further, but one useful thing would be to see if
Martin's last checkin to _bsddb.c has any effect.

strace-ing the process gives me:

% strace -p 26615
futex(0x82fb8c0, FUTEX_WAIT, 0, NULL
