I think all of these tests rely on waitUntilWorkerThreadsExit which to my memory is just plain flaky for jsc due to how garbage collection is done there.

I think Drew Wilson tried to fix this but it was usually a form of let's try this because it is hard to force the gc to happen and recognize that an object is not referred to anymore.

I bet they started failing due to all the gc changes that have been happening and I suspect that it isn't worth the trouble to keep them running on jsc. (I believe they work for v8 and this in turn will test the shared code in WebKit for this stuff which is the most important thing.)
