What misled me was that the first build was successful and only the
second build failed.
The failure in the second build is:
=== RUN TestInotifyStress
--- FAIL: TestInotifyStress (5.00s)
inotify_test.go:236: Creates and removes should not be off by more than
one: 1502 creates, 1509 removes
Is the second build constantly failing due to some difference in the
build environments (e.g. TestInotifyStress dislikes French), or is
this a testcase that sometimes fails randomly?
This seems clearly different from both #819452 and your
"dpkg-buildpackage -A" issue.
I agree with you that this is RC no matter whether it depends on the
environment or happens randomly.
