Not good news I'm afraid.  The old testsuite has half a dozen failures
or more on several machines, and the new testsuite gets stuck in an
infinite loop on some of the others :(

Rather that do a comprehensive breakdown in one email, I'll get logs
of the common failure cases in separate threads presently, and rerun
the whole testsuite on a newer snapshot when we've tackled the worst
of those.
