I use regrtest.py -j 4 on a Intel Quad Core on Linux: 4 tests are really 
running at the same time, and I only get only one spurious failure: 
test_ioctl. It should be easy to fix this test.

Or we can maybe write a blacklist of tests not compatible with multiprocessing 
mode (or the opposite, a whitelist of compatible tests).
