Used to see it occasionally (but nothing like the 50% level) quite a lot
on older 8.0 stable systems doing builds under jenkins. It started
behaving better when I put a wrapper around the builds that ran things
in a PTY. The problem also seemed to be sensitive to how much data was
backed up in the output pipe. Even with the pty if I didn't keep the
pipe drained by flushing the stdout of the wrapper it seemed to behave
Was more prevalent with thunderbird than firefox but I have seen it on both.
I've also seen gmake blow up with errors on stdout/stderr at process
exit causing the build to fail (also in firefox/thunderbird) but again
haven't seen that since I switched to the wrapper approach either.
Also with MAKE_JOBS set to 8.
