Different type of failure as well; if you look at the original failure it
has to do with the help output having an extra newline.

1 test OK.

Actually, that run had two checkins; there was also 46755.  But when I ``svn
update -r46754`` it still fails on my OS X laptop.  So still ain't my
fault.  =)

Oh, we live in America; we have a list to pull from.  =)

As to why the failure only showed up recently, I'm not sure, but

We don't have any mechanism in place to record when we find tests failing in
a row to always run them in that order until we fix it, do we?  Nor do we
have a script to just continually check out older revisions in svn, compile,
and test until the tests do pass, huh?
