Probably not. Past experience is that it is the Processor that needs to
be tracked. There should be a way to get that logged.

As it happens some further digging showed that the failure did not
depend on any other tests (I missed this the first time around as I was
testing in a different environment where the test passed). Now I have a
repeatable failure in a relatively simple test case I can start looking
at it more closely. That is today's task.

Ack. I'm not going to get to that before the TCK issue is addressed. If
it still todo when I have finished the TCK stuff I'll take a look.
