Hi Simon,

First of all, sorry for not being more involved...

I can't reproduce the problem here with a copy of `master'.  Does
`openpgp-auth.scm' (or other tests) fail similarly?  What platform is
this on?

That seems to be the problem here: a Guile input port has been created
for `/' and is being read from, which fails.  I can't find why this

Can you show the value of `$GUILE_LOAD_PATH' and all the `-L' switches
passed to `guile' (see `guile/pre-inst-guile' and `TESTS_ENVIRONMENT' in

Can you also send me the whole `strace' output, if possible?
