I realized I hopefully should be able to debug the issue via the normal 
testing/buildbot infrastructure, by adding a few more commands in the test 
that print things to stdout. If the test runs successfully it shouldn't be 
visible anywhere, and if it fails, it'll give me further clues about what 
actually went wrong.

I apologize for the extra commit churn this might end up with, but 
hopefully it'll let me figure this out without waiting for help from the 
buildbot owners.
