I have mixed feelings about these sorts of failures. I understand the
need to build in a non-networked environment, but it is also unrealistic
to expect that networking software not contain unit tests that exercise
networking.  Disabling such tests is potentially a disservice to our
users; we're no longer testing as much as we could during a build.

I think eventually we're going to have to have a better way to
differentiate between what a package needs during its build phase vs.
its test phase, but that's a discussion for after the jessie release.

Emmanuel, any concerns with an upload to disable this test?  BTW,
there's a good (and expansive) thread on a related topic here:
