I'm pretty sure it did. I think all the tests passed the last time I
released this package (2011-09-10), but I might have been testing
against a snapshot. It's hard for me to tell now. If I just install
1.7.9 on my system, things like /bin/ls stop working. The compiled tests
don't run, either.

FYI, the test was passing with 1.7.10 and the 20120214 snapshot. It
didn't start failing until your last snapshot (20120215).
