Obviously you need nothing to know about the test except that it works with
a COM-port, so the only thing you'd need to investigate is the difference
between VMs in COM-port setup, and try to figure out why this test doesn't
always pass. I have no no idea what kind of results you have in mind that
I'd need to share. Also I'd appreciate avoiding the wording like "please
don't waste my time", otherwise it becomes pretty obvious that I should
just reply to failure notifications in the testbot with simple "it's broken"
and stop wasting my time explaining why.
