I started a separate thread re cached credentials in the test suite.
The question at hand is what to do about 1.4.4:

* Apply Dave's fix for the test to trunk and backport (seems kinda silly
since trunk doesn't require it).

* Apply it directly to 1.4.x (totally bogus?)

* Have testers manually apply it to the 1.4.4 RC, run the tests, and
state that they did so when providing their sigs (violates our testing
process at bit, but can't we be flexible?)

* Other?
