This is /not/ the way to write a test that tickles a known bug. The
thing to do is to write the test so that it expects things to work
correctly, then to mark it as XFAIL. Once the bug is fixed, the test
will pass with an XPASS status, which is intended to alert whoever fixed
the bug that they have to update the test's status, too.
