Issue 1809 is an interesting test of this policy.  `make test` sometimes 
for some programmers, making it very hard for them to contribute, but it 
in the Guile garbage collection, so we might be powerless to resolve the issue.

 fix it (by some miracle)
 work around it
 assign blame, and push the bug report, upstream, or
 give up
