[development] Error running SimpleTest on new installation

That particular error is usually caused by a bug in one of the unit tests you ran causing simpletest to hiccup.  I've seen it a couple of times, and it's sometimes sporadic, unfortunately.  It could be a bug in simpletest itself.  I've not ruled that out yet.

See if you can narrow it down to a single test that's causing the problem.  If you can establish a pattern (a particular test, more than X tests, some particular phase of the moon, etc.) then file a bug report for the appropriate module (which could be simpletest itself).  If you need more help narrowing it down, stop by #Drupal on IRC.  Simpletest is high in the mind of most core devs of late, so there's a good chance you'll find someone who can give you more detailed help tracking down the problem.

Thank you for helping make Drupal better!
