Weird. I also see a strange failure on t5310 when building with
PROFILE=BUILD. We get a segfault when reading jgit-produced bitmaps.
Tracking it down, we're getting inexplicably bogus data from an mmap'd
file (!). Compiling without PROFILE=BUILD, the test passes fine (even
with valgrind).

If I instrument it like this:

diff --git a/ewah/ewah_io.c b/ewah/ewah_io.c
index f7f700e..8cafacf 100644

a regular test-run reads:

and a PROFILE=BUILD one reads:

  warning: got buffer_size of 2 from 33554432

I'm willing to believe we're doing something weird that violates the C
standard there, but I really can't see it.

Anyway, that's a side note to your problem...

Yeah, that looks to me like what is happening, too. If I put a 'sleep
1' into log_div, it passes. I would think apache would write the log
before serving the file, but perhaps not. And like you, I would expect
gcov to make things slower, not faster. Could there be something in the
environment that

I'm not sure what the best fix is. We could check the logfiles after
each test instead of at the end, but that will just end up with the same
race: we may check them before apache has written them.

Hrm. This already came up, and we dealt with it in 0232852 (t5537: move
http tests out to t5539, 2014-02-13). Which is in v2.0.0.

But somehow the code is back in v2.0.0 Presumably this is the result of a
mis-merge. I'll send a patch.
