At least, I was able to run the test :)

Oh, I remember reading such a thread, but didn't understood how it could 
be related to the problem I had this morning... Now, it make sense.

Ok, it explain the 'why'. As running the integ test as root is not an 
option, I guess that a profile is mandatory. May be checking that the 
user is root at the beginning of the test could help, or at least that 
he had enough priviledge to open a port on 88.

Hopefully, you will come with a correct solution sooner or later !

Thanks for the explanaition, Enrique, I was afraid that commenting this 
test could weaken the server (integ test are good) buy now I see this 
will be a temporary solution. Anyway, the JIRA will remain until we fix 
it, which is why JIRA are good for ;)
