To some extent yes. The question is whether the failure is serious
enough that we should continue to have the tests failure, or just a
minor annoyance that we should paper over it.
I'm fairly on the fence about this one - originally I wasn't going
to fix it, but it took a while for 3.5.7 to arrive and quite a few
people raised the issue of broken tests to me in the meanwhile.
We could just leave this patch sitting on the list here for archive
reference, but not fix it in git.
