I've given it a pretty good workout with builds of Emacs and TeX Live, 
and everything seems good so far.

FYI, following a suggestion made by Corinna on IRC, I'm building all the 
Emacs libraries (.eln files as well as tree-sitter grammar libs) with 
ASLR enabled and no rebasing.  I have about 400 of these libraries on my 
system.  I've been doing this for about a month without any fork failures.
