PS. And now I know why it's happening. Seems the testers are running
develop & master tests from the same testing tree. And hence the same git
clone. Which doesn't work the way regression script does the clone &
checkout. As it leaves submodules around when it checks out from one branch
to another. As git refuses to delete empty submodule directories. So I'll
have to find a way to deal with this use case :-(

PPS. I hate git submodules.
