I have also tested it against 2.0.28 on another system and don't see
these errors there.  I'm *only* seeing the errors on the headless build

Not that i'm aware of.  The headless build system where these errors
show up is using cowbuilder inside a chroot.  This means no
pseudo-terminal is directly attached to the build/test process -- i
don't know whether that's relevant.  i'm stumped by this right now :/
