How many tests (besides the jsonrpc one) do we expect to be broken due
to this? It seems that tests relying on such a bug are inherently
brittle, so maybe we can bite the bullet and apply the patch
nevertheless? Or introduce another hack in process.c that treats ERT
tests specially, as if debug-on-error were bound?
