IIRC it's this block:

{
    # The "use IO::File" is not actually used for anything; its only
    # purpose is to incite a lot of calls to newCONSTSUB.  See the p5p
    # archives for the thread "maint@20974 or before broke mp2 ithreads test".
    use IO::File;
    $_->join for map threads->new(sub{ok($_, "stress newCONSTSUB")}), 1..2;
}

also IIRC Jarkko took it (the test) out of maint because no-one was able to
pin down the cause, let alone fix it.

I can't reproduce it on FreeBSD or Linux
