The bot powering the /test command is feeling so-so at the moment, see 
my reply to Yasumasa on jdk-dev [0]. I'm hoping to find some cycles to 
fix this today, but there are few other bugs with high prio to handle at 
the moment too :/

I should have this fixed by end of this week, sorry for any 
inconveniences this may have caused.
