The failure mode is a generic "an external dependency expected by a test suite is not available or doesn't run", applying to many core Python test that invokes an external utilities, and not specific to OS.

As far as I'm aware, the best practice and recommendation for these cases is that 'tests should not test dependencies', and to skip/skipif these (external) dependencies are not available or fail to load/run.

Of course, the call is yours :)

I'll rebuild gdb/bash if you decide you don't want the error to remain to test improving the test suite.
