It doesn't fix the failures I'm seeing. conc007, conc012 and conc030 all fail
for me at the moment, although the compiler itself seems pretty stable.
Should your patch be committed or not?

I haven't seen conc023 fail, except the ghci way:
conc023: failed to create OS thread: Not enough storage is available to process
which is reasonable. I'm not running on an HT or MT machine though, so the
other conc023 failures might only show up with there are multiple hardware threads.
what happened here?
I believe this one fails occasionally due to non-fatal reasons (performGC_:
interrupted). I should fix the test really.

conc058 shouldn't be failing now.
