os: on Plan 9: stat mycmd: stat buffer too short #11132
When I ran a version of http://golang.org/cl/10809 on the plan9 trybot, it failed with
--- FAIL: TestGoInstallCleansUpAfterGoBuild (0.61s)
This is from https://storage.googleapis.com/go-build-log/0ec7ceac/plan9-386_37213075.log , though I'm not sure how long that will stick around.
The code that causes this error is simply
os.Stat is returning an error that is not nil, and not IsNotExist(err), but is intead the relatively meaningless error "stat buffer too short".
I am going to modify the test to avoid the error. Recording this issue so that the problem can be fixed.
Forever. It's in storage (Cloud storage!) and storage is cheap. The temporary URLs now have temporary in their name. They're in-process only because they stream live output. But I've filed #11141 for a better fix.
