Indeed, that's what I meant. Sorry about the confusion.

Me too. What I did while I can't move this forward was install in a
separate Guix profile a local package definition of public-inbox with
tests disabled. Then I run lei with:

$ guix shell -p path/to/profile -- lei up --all

Yes, that's what I'm seeing as well. The lei-daemon process is actually
killed, but because of bug 30948 it is left in a zombie state and so the
testsuite thinks that it didn't go away.

The testsuite checks whether lei-daemon is gone by doing a
“kill(<lei-daemon pid>, 0)”, which unfortunately succeeds for zombie processes.

I've been meaning to add child reaping to the Guix builder process, but
I'm moving very slowly due to time constraints and my unfamiliarity with
that part of Guix...
