Hopefully Sian will provide a quick fix for this common case.  In the
meantime, what is you position on M7?  Do you think M7 needs a fix for
this issue?  Are there other must-fix issues that you consider blockers?

I would not be unhappy to release r681495 as M7 since these are test
issues rather than code issues and we have released with failures due
to bad tests before.  So I vote +1 on this thread.

Of course, if Sian can provide a prompt fix for this test issue then she
has my +1 to commit it and we can start another vote.

I'm sure Sian is considering other options for M8. ;-)
