Yep - we figured it out on IRC.  Commit f0e9dfe (not present in 0.8.8)
fixed commandtest to use its own processgroup; my guess is that the
fedora build farm used to run things such that the test happened to
pass, but recently changed to where a new process group is created by
the builder, which in turn reflected to a test failure unless
commandtest is made more robust.
