These tests fail on the SnowLeopard bot since a while:

About to skip them in order to reduce permanent breakage. Needs investigation.
Maybe Eric Carlson knows what's going on?

My guess is that these are failing because the build machine is headless. We have attached a monitor to see if it fixes the failures.

As noted in other bugs, the problem is still with us. :(

Looks like these were actually skipped at a later point.  These are in the skipped list now.

As we disable more and more of these, the next one always fails.

The latest:

I think we should start looking for a test before these which is poisoning the first test.  Or for a QuickTime issue which could be causing this.

Still not sure I understand what's going on here, but this is definitely the most common cause of failures on our Snow Leopard bots.

I need to figure out what the 1000 tests run before this one are so that I can see if it might be caused by some test prior to this one.  Unfortunately the logs on the buildbot do not include --verbose output: http://build.webkit.org/builders/SnowLeopard%20Intel%20Release%20(Tests)/builds/4197/steps/layout-test/logs/stdio

One of the few blemishes on our beautifully green bots. :(

Test media/video-load-networkState.html has failed multiple times today (02/01/2010), including in r54195, r54198, r54200, and r54202, among others.

Simon Fraser landed a possible fix, turned out it doesn't work, still. Skipped test in r54895 to make SL bot green again.
