Sorry about this breakage - the bug was specific to out of process  
plug-in code, so I didn't pay enough attention to other build bots. It  
seems that the failure has uncovered a different issue.

Disabling the test was definitely the right thing to do. I'll file a  
separate bug for a randomly crashing old test that got disabled  
together with it, as it doesn't seem related.

- WBR, Alexey Proskuryakov
