So, this thread has moved around many subjects, still we did not get
to the core of the issue which is what we should try to do to avoid
sporadic failures like what the top of the thread is mentioning.

Perhaps beginning a new thread with a patch and a summary would be
better at this stage? Another thing I am wondering is if it could be
possible to test that rather reliably. I have been playing with a few
scenarios like holding the system() call for a bit with hardcoded
sleep()s, without much success. I'll try harder on that part.. It's
been mentioned as well that we could just move away from system() in
the long-term.
