OK. All the tests now pass in all configurations.

Well, it would be good if this was the same problem, not two different ones.

The problems with libgc 7.2 began in FreeBSD 9.0, and where not
present in 8.x or 7.x.
I only tested current master on FreeBSD 9.0... until this evening. I
just managed to reproduce the same problem with STklos on Linux in at
least one configuration, and it is completely absent in another, so
this may not be a libgc problem.

As this may be a false alert, please let me run more tests and get
back to you before you invest more time in this issue.
