I've been developing, running and testing SVN on a 2-cpu WinXP box for
quite a while now, and haven't seen anything similar. Besides, the
client and the tests run in a single thread; there can be no races there.

(Note that there can be a race between the client and the server, and
these show up on Windows in the test cleanup processing; we have code in
the test suite that "fixes" that.)
