I don't seem to be able to repeat this one. In terms of possible
- GC pause - unlikely unless you have very little memory available
- OS goes off to do something else? Maybe. But the system is idle.
- bug in fairness allocation? Unlikely. We should see
testBorrowObjectFairness failures if that were the case.
- Something else?

I'll try reducing the timeout from 1000ms to see if I can create the
same failures you see.

This might be fixed by r781288. Do you still see it?
