is a recent fail. Was actually chatting with clarkb just now to make it 
so failed vms can be kept around longer to debug.

Actually, I think we got that fixed yesterday after some nova and 
devstack changes. So the fails aren't masked.

The nova race is really hard to reproduce though, I think in reality 
most of our dev machines are just too much faster than the CI 
infrastructure. So running the tests inside a 4 vcpu 4 GB guest (making 
the devstack creates on qemu) is probably needed here.

If anyone manages to get to the bottom of this one, you'll be the hero 
of many.
