I see a test failure too, but only if I run the testsuite via an 
automated script *and* in a cronjob (talk about adding multiple 
complications ;-)).

test-getlogin.log shows the line throwing the error:
test-getlogin.c:48: assertion failed

The 'offending' line in test-getlogin.c is:
       ASSERT (isatty (0));

Since my test environment is somewhat out of the ordinary, I'll live 
with a sed/patch and not try to figure it out.
