It's a 64bit virtualbox VM running 32bit CentOS 4.9.  Failed 16 out of
200 times when I ran it in a loop.  On the host hardware (quad-core
Intel i3, ubuntu 12.04.4) it failed only 1 out of 100.

  { repeat 100 make check TESTNUM=X02 } |& grep -c '[1-9] failure'

} (I guess you have already tried uncommenting all of zpty_flush)

You mean uncommenting the other 3 calls to zpty_flush?  Yes.  It
still fails sometimes (I didn't bother running the full hundreds
of passes).

} What happens if you modify the test as follows (i.e., add a text
} after 'redo') ?

Applied that patch, but still get occasional failure.

OF course it's not consistent WHERE it failes, so patching any one test
is not likely to help.  E.g., in this most recent try the failure is

../../zsh-5.0/Test/X02zlevi.ztst: starting.
