If I run `./mach xpcshell-test security/manager/ssl/tests/unit/`, test_pkcs11_insert_remove.js will consistently fail when run in parallel, but it will always succeed when rerun by mach (or xpcshell - I'm not actually sure who's doing what here). I would like to know why it failed, but mach (or xpcshell - again I'm not sure who's in charge here) doesn't give me any informative output (because, after all, everything eventually succeeded). I guess either I want a way to look at the output from the original failing test or to have mach/xpcshell treat that failure as a failure and dump the output from it.

Oh, I guess there's '--verbose', but that gives me way too much output - I really only want the output from the failing test.
