Okay, I've tracked this down.  The problem is that my Mac environments
have support for libmagic, while ashcloud does not.  So when the test suite
was generated, it had file-type identification, but when run on ashcloud,
the results don't.

I'm inclined not to fix this right now, since I gather the plan is to
revamp the whole testing framework.  If I'm wrong about that, though, then
we need to brainstorm about the best fix.
