Bug Description

Reported by pitti on IRC:

<pitti> vila: bzr fails on the various stderr spam (,label=adt/console) and doesn't declare "allow-stderr"
<pitti> vila: is that stderr expected and considered "normal" (and thus we should add allow-stderr), or considered an indication of a bug?

<vila> pitti: hmm, you mean the stderr output needs to be declared or the test fails ? Those messages... are caused by a minor bug... with annoying ramifications. I have a fix though but I never submitted it because I thought I was the only one observing it...

<vila> pitti: it's a test-only bug for that matter
<pitti> vila: yes, by default stderr is considered a failure, mostly to catch unexpected warnings and such

<vila> pitti: and to better understand, is this new ?
<pitti> vila: the stderr output is new, yes; fail-on-stderr has always been the case
