This test rarely fails in the past on some configurations but was never a problem listed, and according to the history of CI, it fails 2 times on its own this year.

There are two possible reasons for the failure:
1. At that time we had a memory leak, which was fixed.
2. The test works too fast and it was not enough time for GC to eliminate 1000 windows.

To make the future evaluation simpler I enhanced the test and make it stricter, see some comments inline.
