I have observed it caught failure at the very first run.
However I could not fail t again. I tried running up to 20
instances, with 1 or 2 active cores (that's all I have
here), also edited the test to include only push_plain case,
and repeat it several times, to avoid running irrelevant
cases, the failure never happened again.

The first failure was a bit unusual, in the ouput actually
all tests were marked as passed, but it still failed
somehow. Unfortunately, I did not save the output.

I submitted the perl patch
