	I tend to agree. If we have obscure crashers for our unit tests during
make - then we should fix them :-)

	Oddly hwpfilter (two of the three reports) is included into tail_build,
and thus it's prj/build.lst dependencies are irrelevant, it should be in
the new, pristine world of gnumake-ness. Which makes this distinctly
odd. Those files should not be moving around after creation - surely ?
and make is all a single process, so it'll wait until the file creation
rule is complete before relying on it rather than statting and finding a
1/2 done file.

	Seemingly tail_build depends on fpicker which depends on ucb - so the
ucb1, ucbfile1 components should be in-place.

	Like Michael S, I too have seen this intermittently fail too - which is
deadly annoying.

	I guess we could add a '--disable-unit-tests' configure option for
