I've been running the Go stress tests for a bit.

I noticed that the memory consumption was heading north of 140 GB but that the heap was
only 20 GB.

The threadRing code called from stressChannels seems to leave N-1 goroutines stuck on
reading from their in channel. The done channel stuff looks a bit... interesting.

For what it's worth, trying to kill the stress test in this state blew up the 3.4.7
