It's hard to say. The failures are not entirely random/non-deterministic
though; sometimes replays fail at exactly the same number of ticks and I
very often see the divergence while executing the following tight loops
(this is a Firefox debug build):
Not sure if that's just because we execute a lot of branches there, or if
there's another reason.
Sometimes I also get this failure: Assertion `!use_breakpoint_optimization'
failed to hold. Is that related?
Knowing more about the test failure could be useful.
Tomorrow or so I'll run the test suite again and log all output.
