But I can't know that.  I only know a subset of what platforms the
test fails on.  If I enumerate the subset, and you find it's fixed
there, you still don't know if it's fixed everywhere, because you
don't know if the original subset was complete.

Anyhow, I only did this on the branch, so it's a non-issue in this
case. :-)
