The transactionless reporter calls set_target_revision when given the
inputs in update_tests 15, while the old reporter did not. So, with a
new server, the client outputs "Updated to revision 3" instead of
"Update complete". So the test case was adjusted accordingly, causing
it to succeed with a new server and fail with an old one.
