I've finally made some time to look at thsi more. The HOME issue seems
to not exist, and I think I've got the testsuite working now.

I noticed that some tests are skipped because they depend on the
network, and this seems helpful, but I think it's just been missed for
some tests. I've pushed a patch upstream to mark some more tests as
needing the network [1].


I'll try to wrangle that patch in to Guix, and neaten up the other
changes, and send some updated patches soon.

Thanks for taking a look,
