Um. No. This was no theoretical problem. Tests were failing. Garrett and
I both experienced the problem independently. We held up the 1.4.0-rc1
release because we felt rc2 was gonna be out in a matter of days. In
retrospect, that might not have been such a good plan. Maybe better to
release rc1 with a warning message about known problems (I mean, I'm running
rc1 on svn.collab.net right now with no issues, so presumably others could,
too) and then continue as usual towards rc2.
