As a comparison, have you run trial with the default reactor?  If this fails
the same way, your machine have an odd configuration which is fouling up the
tests, or it may simply not have enough ram to run the full test suite.

On the other hand, if this runs successfully, then what you are seeing is
basically one aspect of the current problem with threadedselect reactor :)
