Checked it, can't see how that proves your point.
Looking at the timestamps in the CI it takes about an hour for build
*AND* test now. Its proven that testing takes around 46 minutes at
least, so the build might take 15 Minutes. Which is perfectly fine,
given that it runs on a machine with old cpus and not much ram.

You are also using different libc implementations. Maybe different
Python code. You are guessing, nothing more.

Lol. Please don't tell me you are not understanding what I meant.
I'm talking about 10-20 lines of code in whatever language you like that
shows that problem. Do you really think I should open a bug at some
random place telling that some random piece somewhere in Freebsd breaks
randomly while testing several thousand lines of c with a lot of weird

And no, reducing WRITE_PAD doesn't make it fail always. I've spent
enough time on it, it does not always fail.
