We need to have a better turnaround time for such test cases or temporarily drop them from the repository.

For last three runs, I've observed the same failure. I think its really
the time to debug this without any further delay. Can you please share a
rackspace machine such that I can debug this issue?


Some of the ec regressions are also having spurious failures [1],
locally all of them are getting through though.
