Yes, I found that also.  I think the file is tests/f_mmp/script
between lines 34 and 40.

I'm not sure about that, but the script definitely does not exit on
it's own.  I think it has something to do with the tty not available
when running from something like jhalfs.  When I tried 'make check'
directly from the command line, everything was OK.

Specifically the log from the command line run has

debugfs:  dump_inode <2> f_mmp.new

It looks like  f_mmp.new is never created and the script hangs waiting
for it if not run from the command line.
