That's backwards; the tests only fail _inside_ the test-suite. I cannot
figure out why the use of --config-dir would cause the keywords hash
from being populated (which is why I wanted to peek at the hash contents).

Yes, I did know that I could run the tests individually, though I didn't
know about the -v flag. That gives me more information, thanks! I'll
prepare a patch to the tests README file describing the usage of -v to
produce verbose output (since I don't see any place that is mentioned).

I think it is highly unlikely to be problems with the pool, because as I
said, it works fine outside of the test-suite directories.
