Unfortunately I cannot reproduce the problem.  But I agree that the "#
coding..." thing appears to be causing the failure.

I'm wondering why the test fails "sometimes".  Does that really mean
that the test finishes successfully one day but fails the next day?

In any case I would prefer to fix the root cause instead of modifying
the test case.  The "# coding..."  should not get inserted into the
diary file, should it?  Where does it come from?
