This is my experience as well.

I had lots of images where it would happen reliably anytime I got a  
debugger via a test case, whether it was a failure, an error, or a  
halt. I pulled that debugger change out of 3.9 and use it in 3.7 and  
3.8 to make developing with tests bearable.

The problem is definitely still there, patching the debugger just  
causes it to happen much less frequently.
