Skipping is normal -- it's intentional, and does not indicate failure.
It just means the test suite isn't running that test, for some (known)
reason.

Interestingly, that test starts out by Skipping if it's running as
root:

   def refresh_read_only_attribute(sbox):
     "refresh the WC file system read-only attribute "
   
     # This test will fail when run as root. Since that's normal
     # behavior, just skip the test.
     if os.name == 'posix':
       if os.geteuid() == 0:
         raise svntest.Skip

So something about that code isn't working for you on CentOS. Can you
find out what it is? If you try "os.getuid" instead of "os.geteuid",
does that change it? What does getlogin() return?

Thanks,
-Karl
