If I understand Gábor's patch correctly, it is using test_i18ngrep for
the specific lines we care about so that we don't have to worry about
other cruft lines that may or may not appear (including the hangup one).
The downside is that we would not notice if a _new_ error message
(beyond the ones we expect and the one we were explicitly ignoring)
appeared. IMHO that's probably fine.
