test-rebuildstate failures

I reran the tests on cset 0750f11152fe from crew
and test-rebuildstate popped-up.

I now frequently get differing output on test-rebuildstate
when repeatedly calling:

%python run-tests.py test-rebuildstate

ERROR: test-rebuildstate output changed

It doesn't fail on every run, but quite frequently (feels like
more than 50% of all calls).

I've seen two good runs followed by a bad one.
I've seen a series of 4 or more bad ones.

My system:

%uname -smr
FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE i386
%python -V
Python 2.5.1

Is anyone else seeing this?
