Hm.  This seems timing related.  Sometimes it prints the restarts=1 and
sometimes it doesn't; apparently if the two tests run quickly enough it
doesn't restart.

I'm not sure why that is, though: -W should be newer than anything all
the time.  Hm.  Maybe it's the foo.x which is not new enough.

Let me look again.
