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 doesn’t even use any of its
functions it fails right away, just like before. A reboot doesn’t help.
It’s getting weirder by the day...
