Alas, both these testlists pass with current change without a hitch.
That probably tells something about the test coverage. Any other ideas
how to test for it? Maybe some manual way?

Anyhow, there is a synonymous block in ThreadGroup handling, I can copy
the relevant bits from there. Updated webrev follows soon. Still need to
test if that change is safe.
