Generally speaking, tests should be independent.  They should not depend on a
previous test, and they should not affect a later test.  If either of these two
conditions occur, either the test is broken or the test tool is broken, and one
or both should be fixed.

It should also be possible to run tests in a completely random order and still
have them all pass.  

At minimum, if a work-around is committed to run these 7 tests singly, then a
follow-up bug should be filed to fix the tests and/or DRT so that they're
independent again.  Otherwise, the issue(s) should be fixed before the patch
