mysqltest: At line 28: query 'start slave' failed with wrong errno 1201: 'Could
not initialize master info structure; more error messages can be found in the
MySQL error

Aborting: rpl_rotate_logs failed in default mode. To continue, re-run with

Yeah, the mysql regression tests are flaky in some environment-sensitive way that I've never been able to 
pin down --- I've found a few causes over the years, but there seems at least one left.  It always works, or 
nearly always, on my own workstation, but fails annoyingly often when building in brew.  I've sometimes 
thought that it's just a matter of timeouts being too low for when there's a lot of other activity slowing the 

(Thinks for a bit ... )  I recall that there's some test that fails with a wrong-errno kind of problem if you try 
to run the build as root, but I didn't think it was this one.

Anyway, unless you can give me a reproducible case, I'm going to have to close this CANTFIX.
