Being on the expected skip lists doesn't keep it from running; the
resource requirement handles that, and causes it to be skipped when
the resource isn't enabled.

Until fairly recently, a test that was skipped due to resource denial
was still reported as an unexpected skip if it wasn't listed.  That
was fixed in Lib/test/regrtest.py revision 1.122.
