Bug Description

It looks like a recent submission of mine got accepted while a syntax error was present.
This may be specific to the bzr pqm instance though.

The bzr revid is: <email address hidden>

Submitting a fix for the syntax error woke up pqm a bit and I was able to capture:

Ok, PQM is innocent, the bug comes from the bzr Makefile:

 check-nodocs: extensions
  # Generate a stream for PQM to watch
  $(PYTHON) -Werror -O ./bzr selftest --subunit $(tests) | tee selftest.log
  # Check that there were no errors reported.
  subunit-stats < selftest.log

The '|' makes the shell action succeeds because 'tee' succeeds, masking the error in the first command.

I'll submit a patch.
