I believe the automated tests are run against "insane" builds.  I think
for identified missed codepaths getting a run against "sane" builds 
would be more valuable as I found that I kept tracking down uncovered
links and they would lead to sanity code that is likely covered when
running the tests in sane mode.  That with kathey's suggestion of
adding runs against multiple jvms should good.  Next step would be
to post it somewhere public so people can help identify what to look
at and see progress.
