In each case given the exception thrown is an OSError: [Errno 2] No
such file or directory, apparently due to inability to locate utmp.
The patch you already supplied at SF bug #697556 should fix any
of those.  Perhaps it's not necessary to scrap the test altogether?

(Now if anyone wants to look into the test_socket problem at 697556....)
