How does everyone else feel about this? I'm inclined to just ship rc1
since it's such a small issue with a note saying that we're aware that
copy_tests.py test #25 fails. Fix it in rc2. Is it worth another day
worth of delay to retest, reaquire signatures, etc... to fix a test that
isn't really failing but is incomplete?

I'm not sure it is. But if you guys think so I will gladly cut an rc2
with a fix.
