I'm running my i386 tests in only 32 MB, and I don't think i386
consumes that much less memory.

Yeah, I agree that that would tend to reduce the probability of memory size solving the problem. Just to be sure, I'll add a

        --qemu-args "-m 512"

to my anita command.

One thing I recently noticed is that if I manually start a qemu
i386 VM (with -m 32) and run the tests twice, as in

 cd /usr/tests

the first test run succeeds, but the second one causes a panic.

Have you managed to get a backtrace or core dump?
