Not really.  I think I pasted you the full output I got - I'm pretty
sure I did get it more than once, but not every time.  We can put it
back into the list and wait for it to show up again if you like.

Any details?  Stuff in the environment I might be able to help with, but
in retrospect, I actually phrased my 'is now reliable' poorly - it's
actually more reliably showing the unreliable nature of the tests
(because it now actually finds failures).
