For closure, I believe this problem was addressed by revs 42842 and
42844 to Lib/test/test_importhooks.py.

If anyone sees spurious failures with the buildbot (one time failures,
crashes, etc), please report the problems to python-dev.  It would be
great to see if you can reproduce the results with the same tests that
failed.  We need to determine if it is architecture specific,
test-order related, or something else.
