Try the test case again but with the command "/usr/bin/tty" (with no
arguments).

For me (GNU/Linux, x86_64):

- p-c-t t

  /dev/pts/51

  Process my-process<4> finished

- p-c-t nil

  not a tty

  Process my-process<4> exited abnormally with code 1

(Meanwhile the test case hangs looking for the expected string until I
Ctrl-g it.)
