Um. I think there was a misunderstanding here. The test, as written now,
passes. In fact, you're not even really testing for the bug!

Once again: The test should be written as if the bug were fixed, so that
the test *fails* whil the bug is still in there. That's the whole point
of XFAIL (expected failure) tests.
