the test does get run with 'make buildbottest', and then fails with a ValueError exception:

That might be a bug in libcurses on OSX, I haven't tested with a separate install of libcurses yet.

BTW. The patch mentioned in Issue12669 looks slightly bogus: as buildbot is a daemon it might not even have a controlling tty. With some luck a proper fix will require the explicit use of a pseudo-tty.
