Most likely not. It sounds like the tests are expecting SequenceMatcher
to always pick one of the possible alternatives, and you are seeing
times when it is picking the other path.

I just ran 'bzr selftest', and I found a bunch of failing tests.
Actually, on my machine they always seem to fail. It might be a python
2.4.3 thing versus python 2.4.1. On my Fedora Core machine, the tests pass.

On my Ubuntu Dapper machine, the tests fail.

I guess some python internals changed that we didn't expect.
