As usual, I forgot my footnote. ;)

It was:

  I've actually mostly given up my stress script in favor of --stress. I
  only used it here because of the bisection issue you mention.

  One other thing I've noticed with it: I forget to add my custom
  --root=/var/ram/git-tests when I invoke it, so my hard disk goes
  crazy (and the tests often run slower!). I'm not sure if there's a
  convenient fix.
