Do you call on potentially-buggy external modules? I'd be curious to
see if this can happen if a module somehow sets an "error state" in
the interpreter, without actually raising an error - or,
alternatively, if a module has some kind of cleanup code that returns
failure. Unfortunately I don't have facilities for testing that, at
the moment.
