It tests our assumptions are correct about the interpreter that finalisation should not occur (more specifically correct for the number of iterations). If the interpreter test passes we have more confidence that if the C1/C2 tests fail it has something to do with compilation and not their interpreted execution when warming up. FWIW it does not increase the execution time by any significant amount.
