Yes, push to a private branch, and ask here so that as a team, we can
sort out why we have a flaky test, and what to do about it. 

Flaky tests are rare, but have existed in both test systems from time to
time.   I know Tridge has been running autobuilds in a loop to watch out
for exactly these, so it's a new problem. 

Can you post the log URL for the failure?  That will help me look into
it this morning.
