Subject: random failure under HARNESS_OPTIONS=j2

This failure occurs roughly one in 100 times when you're running as simply:

> for i in $(seq 0 100); do prove -j100 -lvr t/*; done

However, I was having it fail _every time_ when trying to install/test via cpanm.

My suspicion is that 02 creates the statefile between the 2 passes of 01's traversal, invalidating the test result, or something like that. Its quirky.

The only thing I can see for sure, is that by customising t/02.t to point the statefile into /tmp/ instead of inside . , then it seems impossible to make the tests fail.

I changed the 3rd test in 01.t to read


if( not ok @res == @res2 ) {
    diag explain {
        res => \@res,
        res2 => \@res2,


And indeed, it shows the difference is the "statefile" produced by 02.t
