It's minor enough that I'm not *that* bothered.

I have a vague prejudice that releasing something with a test failing,
even if it's a "real" failure, is going to cause more trouble than it's
worth for something that's not a core part of the shell and which is new
anyway.  Suppose we apply the test patch now and back it off immediately
after the release?  The released code is still capable of showing the
problem, so this don't make debugging harder.
