I spoke too soon. There seems to be some kind of runtime decay and a
dependency on semaphore.h.

Running the same test or the two tests alternating works for about three
times just as expected but further runs fail as before. A reboot fixes
that and gives me another few chances. This only applies to read().
sem_wait() always works.

If the test code includes semaphore.h but doesnÂ’t even use any of its
functions it fails right away, just like before. A reboot doesnÂ’t help.

ItÂ’s getting weirder by the day...
