Running the darcs tests, during two of the network tests I was prompted for my 
password, I think because they try to ssh to `whoami`@localhost, which asks 
for a password at least on this mac.

Tests to run non-interactively.

The darcs 2.12 source.

OSX el capitan.

Network tests should be on by default only on the development branch,
and off for releasae branches. Anyway, it would be nice to find a
solution that somehow detects if user input is required and skips the
ssh based tests in this case. I have sent a patch (patch1526) that, for
me at least, seems to do this.
