I should point out that for me it does reproduce locally in a
consistent manner, both on master and on 4b4ae005 but not on
4b4ae005~1. OTOH, it does seem timing related, since it doesn't fail
if I just add '--picky-developer' to the above configure. So I guess
that commit just impacts on the timing.
