Yes, but we would really like to make our testing more robust. IIUC,
this is a problem that could reoccur, say if a test gets in a loop that
involves output. So I'd like to see process_jam_log deal with it, even
if the original problem is fixed.

I'd fix it myself, but if I stop working on release management issues
every time I see a robustness issue, the release will never get out.
