Test skipped for 1.0 release in r37526, to be unskipped immediately after.

I just tried this test here (Ubuntu 9.04, x86-64), and it passes without problem. Can I get some kind of verification from people on other systems that this is or is not still an error?

I would test it out on the box that had the original failure, but I recently upgraded it to 9.04. That version of Ubuntu is so old, I can't even create a chroot for it, because the packages have been removed from the archives.

Testing on x86/32 Ubuntu 9.04 passes. I unskipped the test in r38872. We don't need to support software that the developers won't even support.
