I do not think I will myself but I guess someone should setup a nightly (or
even per-commit) regression testing even in this mode.

I have never been dealing with remote hosts testing so I do not know.
But I find it a bug in such case.

I find it a bug that something does not work during parallel testing while it
could.  Testsuite takes IIRC half an hour or more in non-parallel mode.

In such case it should IMNSHO print an error so that people do not have to
chase random testsuite failures if they do so and they miss the documentation
mentioning it.

I find that really the best.  Although it still should use more than
a basename as there are duplicate basenames in the gdb.* directions:
	for i in gdb/testsuite/gdb.*;do find $i -type f -printf "%f\n";done|sort|uniq -d
