Fair enough.  But I'd still like an explanation of why only about
half of the population is showing a failure here.  Seems like every
machine should be seeing the LSN as moving backwards in this test.
So (a) why aren't they all failing, and (b) should we change the
test to make sure every platform sees that happening?
