Chris, can you confirm that the tweaked test addresses your problem?
Then I'll send a real patch for review.
Yes, with your patch the test passes, in just over 5 seconds of runtime.
Did you try this patch with the fix backed out?  Does it still fail?

I reverted your change to malloc/arena.c and the test failed with an abort.
