I don't know what the problem is, but the test reads an awful lot like a
"system test" to me.  Any particular reason you wish to run this as a
"unit test"?  Perhaps we need another category for "package tests"?  :)

I suspect converting to a system test will fix this problem, as it will
use a "normal" store instead of the scratch one in ./test-tmp.
