Relevant bit (reported by Ganesh):
> In general failing tests are properly reported, but two tests in
> particular start failing silently (whereas they were passing

> latin9-input.sh and it turns out that the test harness itself
> is throwing something like "fd:25: hGetLine: invalid argument
> (invalid byte sequence)", which explains the lack of output.
