I've been working hard to try and reproduce this error, using the
Catalyst Cloud[1] with Ubuntu versions 14.04 and 12.04 and on

I've reverted this change, and then run autobuilds, and had many
different flapping tests, including a nice one in CTDB that amitay has
been helping out with, and the notify test failures I mentioned in
another mail, but never this one!

I've even tried extending the test suite to help us know what the
difference is, but I can't trigger the failure to have it show up (I've
tested it does produce helpful output by manually forcing the test to
fail however)!

Please review/push this patch, and help me understand how I can get this
test off the flapping list, so we can consider the tombstone reanimation
patches for 4.2.
