I was more wondering whether a (possible) bug should be entered.

If I understand you correctly, the same tests were also able to run on
1.3.1 after a few tries. "If" there is a "potential deadlock" issue, it
may or may not occur every time the test is run, depending on the nature
of the problem, initial conditions, what else is running..

If someone is interested in trying to track it down (or see if they
can), it may require running tests over a longer period of time on
multiple cpu machines perhaps with vary load. I don't have a multi-cpu
or dual-core box at this time, so I can't assist.
