The test I see failing is test 6 in t0016-oidmap.  Grepping
for '^not ok ' is helpful in this case, though it's even
better when the test summary is provided, as it points to
the failing tests by name and number.

The t0016-oidmap failure is discussed in the thread starting
here:

    https://public-inbox.org/git/04b301d54715$3b371a90$b1a54fb0$@nexbridge.com/T/

Peff posted a patch which resolves the test failure here:
