Yes, but this is a test. It could make sense to run that redundantly, just
to make sure it doesn't fail doing redundant stuff. However, by doing that,
it currently (potentially) obscures all the actual tests.

So, what now -- maybe someone out there already knows what the test suite
should do to test that run_copy_revprops() thing, or someone needs to step
back to pre-r29600 to find out what error that line was trying to catch.

Won't be me right now, though ;)
