IIUIR this was a case where EUI ended up using an older version of
some files that were in EUMM. I synched EUI to the latest version of
the EUMM test infrastructure and I think that should have resovled
this problem.

Actually, ive been meaning to chase something related to that, in that
some time back I did some slicing and dicing of some of the test files
in the core that are shared by EUMM and EUI to make it easier to
construct the EUMM and EUI from the core files properly, but it seems
maybe these changes were not pushed to EUMM even though Schwern was
advised of them, and I think later on they were overwritten by
somebody doing a naive "copy EUMM" into core. So its actually possible
that EUI isnt being properly tested in core anymore. I need to dig
further today.
