As it turns out, the automated testing framework was not correctly handling the situation where dataset metadata is set externally. I've committed a fix for that in 10295:59243394031a, and this should result in seq_rename now being correctly tested.

When it comes to the sniffer situation, I've created a trello card for that issue, where you can track the status:

Great - so this was a sniffer bug for the twobit format going wrong,

As for seq_rename, it looks like the columns in
four_human_proteins.rename.tabular are not being detected correctly, even
though they are tab separated. I'll continue to investigate, and let you
know what I discover.

I was assuming (wrongly perhaps) that if the tool XML for the test
defined an ftype this would be used as the datatype - overriding
any sniffer guess (or even skipping the sniffer tests).

(You can think of this a like testing the process where a user has
uploaded a given file and manually overridden the datatype.)

i.e. It is good that this issue has apparently uncovered some
sniffer bugs, but that doesn't seem to be the root issue.
