Unfortunately, your proposed fix has the result of requesting a
*strict* POSIX environment, so applications that depend on system
interfaces that were not in the 1993 threading amendments will no
longer compile.  Maybe this doesn't matter in the specific case of
your testing framework, but it's not a universally correct solution.
