Which one failed in 64 bit mode? The basic stress.Mix or Weldon's MegaSpawn?
And did it hang, or run out of memory? Running out of memory on these 64 bit
systems is not easy even under the conditions of this test.

I am a little confused too. The stress.Mix test can randomly land up doing
unbounded thread creation( as in Weldon's repro case )...and I would think
that it is not unreasonable to fail in such a case. The RI fails too. But I
don't understand how it never failed before.
